Cuarteto SolTango

...zum 2. mal dabei:

Cuarteto SolTango! Vielen Tangofreunden wird das wundervolle Unplugged-Konzert in der Stiftskirche zum Festival 2013 noch in gänsehauterzeugender Erinnerung sein. In diesem Jahr sind sie wieder bei uns zu Gast, und darauf sind wir schon etwas stolz. Eines der angesagtesten Cuartetos präsentieren zu können ist etwas ganz Besonderes. Unsere Anfrage wurde spontan mit einer Zusage beantwortet, schliesslich war das El Tranvia! - Sommerfestival noch in bester Erinnerung!
