Additional guest artists include Argentine bandoneon player Emmanuel Trifilio and tango dancers Jennifer & Fabio Bonini (from Chile and Brazil. respectively). The concert will include music by Carlos Gardel and Astor Piazzolla. The concert is part of MINDS WIDE OPEN: Children and the Arts and is supported by the Alexandria Commission for the Arts and ACPS Arts Center.
