Joan Singer, founder and director of chamber music group QuinTango, wants Islanders to fall in love with tango.

The world-renowned musical troupe will make its Island debut next week as a part of the Martha’s Vineyard Chamber Music Society’s artist in residency program. The week will be packed with arts education, Argentinian dance and live performances.

“It’s music that leads with the heart and is about personal experiences,” said Ms. Singer. “Each of these experiences are crystalized in the music and every person who hears it will have images come to mind. It’s cinematic.”

This year is QuinTango’s 25th anniversary, and the Virginia-based group has performed and led youth music education programs all over the world.

Ms. Singer first thought to bring the group to the Vineyard when she connected with Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School strings teacher Amy Wood during a visit to the Island to see family.

“My cousin suggested that she invite some of her friends over and Irwin, my husband who teaches tango, could give lessons,” Ms. Singer said. “Six or seven people came over and did a lesson while I played the violin. Amy came over and expressed how wonderful it would be for her kids to learn this music.”

During the group’s stay from March 13 to 17, QuinTango will perform at schools and teach workshops for youth orchestras across the Island. Ms. Singer emphasized that all of their work focuses on mentoring young musicians and exposing them to new styles of music.

The high school’s orchestra, which has been learning Argentine tango repertoire in anticipation of the troupe’s arrival, will be opening for QuinTango at the group’s free community concert on March 17 at 6 p.m. at the regional high school performing arts center.

After the concert, audience members will have the opportunity to meet the musicians and participate in a community tango dance.

In a collaboration between the Chamber Music Society and performing arts nonprofit The Yard, QuinTango will also provide live accompaniment for tango classes at the regional high school cafeteria on March 15 and 16 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. The classes will be taught by QuinTango’s director of dance Analia Centurion, a professional tango dancer and teacher from Buenos Aires.

Yvonne Mendez, program director and acting executive director at The Yard, says that tango lessons were once offered at The Yard many years ago. She looks forward to its revival and emphasizes that people do not need a partner to participate — just comfortable clothes and sneakers.

Kim Baumhofer, Chamber Music Society board president, hopes that QuinTango’s artist-in-residency marks the beginning of more year-round events for the society. She believes that its partnership with The Yard demonstrates what happens when small nonprofits band together to create something bigger than what’s possible on their own.

“It takes a tremendous community effort to create a musician,” Ms. Baumhofer said. “Our job is to mentor these young people so that the music can keep playing and dancers can keep dancing.”
