Icosa: It Takes Two to Tango!

The Santiago Quartet and Icosa Choir join forces with children from St Thomas of Canterbury Catholic Primary School in Guildford for a concert of exciting, rhythmically-charged, Tango-inspired Latin American music for all the family. It is unusual for a choir and string quartet to perform together but this concert is a natural collaboration for the Santiago Quartet and Icosa, who are both keen to extend the performance parameters of their respective musical repertoires and bring them to new audiences.
