Join us for an evening of soulful holiday entertainment by Cortango, a classical and jazz fusion ensemble featuring members of the St. Louis Symphony. Guests will enjoy a compilation of Argentine tangos and classic Christmas carols, reimagined in beautiful and unusual arrangements. Founded and led by Cally Banham, the band is named after her instrument, the cor anglais, commonly known as the English horn. Cortango debuted at the St. Louis Ritz-Carlton in May 2013, and has been featured in concert at New York City’s Cary Hall and at Powell Symphony Hall. As part of the community programs for the St. Louis Symphony, Cortango has performed for patients at Siteman Cancer Center, for veterans at The Jefferson Barracks, and in many local colleges.
Cortango’s debut album Tandas was released in 2015, with the release featured on national PBS show Arts America. Currently, Cortango is a featured collaborator on Banham’s new solo Christmas recording, CorChristmas, available in December 2018.
Cortango is: Cally Banham, English Horn; Asako Kuboki, Violin; Chris Tantillo, Viola; Melissa Brooks, Cello; David DeRiso, Bass; and Adam Maness, Piano.
