Eko Nova Presents ‘Tango Romántico”

February 8th, 2018

By Corbin Hirschhorn

When Omaha Chamber Music Society began planning Eko Nova’s next performance at Kaneko, Tango Romántico, they were right to call Omaha Symphony’s lead flutist Maria Harding.

Keeping in line with Eko Nova’s ethos, Harding selected tunes from both classic and contemporary, living composers. The task for Harding and fellow performers, including Canadian guitarist and arranger Louis Trepanier, is to maintain tango’s street spirit in the gallery setting.

Tango Romántico offers guests two unique experiences as far as chamber concerts go. The audience is invited to dance, and instructors from Omaha’s vintage ballroom will be there to help.

Also enjoy samplings of Argentine wine and chocolate from Chocolate Abeille in the Old Market.

Tango Romántico is Monday, Feb. 12 at Kaneko at 7:00pm. For more information or tickets, visit OmahaChamberMusic.org.

‘light’ on Display at Kaneko

December 30th, 2017

By Corbin Hirschhorn

“One of the things that we really sought to do with light is dial it back to a time when light was really mystifying and almost spiritual in nature,” said Chris Hochstetler, Kaneko’s Executive Director. “We very much take for granted now the ability to walk in a room and flip on a switch and just have light, and yet, there are still societies on the planet that are completely shut down at night time when darkness arises, and they can do nothing. It harkens back to a time when societies almost worshipped light, and almost every major religion has connotations of light running through it. There’s a certain type of mysticism around light that I feel like we’ve lost a little bit, and part of our effort was to bring that back to people.”
