An Argentinian musician will perform alongside the Harborough Collective this weekend.
Eduardo Garcia will join the ensemble for the show entitled Barcos - The Extraordinary Journey of Tango. It is inspired by the life-changing journey across the Atlantic made by Europeans seeking a new life in the Americas.
Garcia's music has been described by organisers as soulful, cinematic, deeply nostalgic, brimming with virtuosity, and full of the distinctive flavours of South America. The programme also features music by another Argentine Astor Piazzolla.
Eduardo said: “When I was a child, I loved to spend long afternoons making paper ships. Without knowing it, I was playing with my own history, the history of my family and the history of my country. Ships move us away from loved ones and lead us to unknown lands and uncertain futures.
Sailing is slow, like dragging one’s feet, but it gives us time to look at the open sea and imagine our new lives. These pieces are humble ‘sound ships’ sailing hopeful seas...”
This concert is the first in the Summer Series of Coffee Concerts and is at 3pm on Sunday May 28 at the Congregational Church, Market Harborough.
Tickets are £11 for adults, £9 for concessions and accompanied children under 18 go completely free.
After the concert the audience are invited to join the musicians for complimentary tea, coffee and biscuits and a chat.
