Fowler Center to Kick Off Concert Season With Quartango


JONESBORO – Arkansas State University’s Fowler Center, 201 Olympic Drive, will begin its 2014-15 season of the Riceland Distinguished Performance Series with the group, Quartango, performing a show titled, “Body and Soul Tango Passion.”

The show is Friday, Sept. 12, at 7:30 p.m. The sponsors for the show are KAIT8 and Crossing Cultures Magazine.

Marking their 25th anniversary in 2009, members of Montréal's Quartango have been sharing their passion for the tango since the release of their first album, “Musica Viva,” in 1986. With a wealth of accolades and awards accumulated over the years, the group's breathtaking blend of contemporary jazz with traditional tango, mixed with elements of classical music, has been performed on some of the world's most prestigious stages, including Carnegie Hall with the New York Pops, as well as Paris, Tokyo and all over Canada.

The show will also feature two Argentine tango dancers, Fabian and Roxana Belmonte, who delight audiences with their intricate, sensual dance steps and the spirited music. Audience members are also invited to arrive early for some free tango lessons before the show, starting at 6:30 p.m.

All seating is reserved. Individual tickets for the Riceland Distinguished Performance Series are $30 and $20 for adults, and $23 and $15 for senior citizens and students, $24 and $16 for ASU faculty and staff, and $10 and $6 for ASU students with a current ID.  Group discounts are available for groups of 15 or more.  Subscription packages include a 20-30 percent discount, and range in price from $20 to $150.

Tickets may be purchased at the Central Box Office in the Convocation Center, 217 Olympic Drive, Jonesboro, or by calling (870) 972-ASU1 or toll-free (888) ASU-FANS.  Tickets are also available online from the Central Box Office, astate.edu/tickets/ and from Fowler Center, yourfowlercenter.com.
