A Weekend of Tango at Amherst College

OST whirled into western MA this past weekend, performing and teaching at the Five Colleges (thanks to Daniel Trenner for bringing us back!). On Saturday, Mari and Tilly led a workshop at Mt. Holyoke College called “Take it Apart and See How It Works: Tango Music From The Inside”, for musicians and dancers alike. Then on Sunday, the fun moved to Amherst College. Tilly and Carlos taught dance workshops before the band’s performance at the crowning milonga that evening. In between the band’s first and second sets, Carlos and Tilly got changed into flashier attire and performed as the featured dancers! Talk about multitasking—they went right back onto the bandstand after dancing up a storm, to roaring applause. Is it fair to call OST a festival in a box yet?


Due to unforeseen events in Boston and the unexpected lockdown of our city, OST’s CD Release Party has been pushed to a later date. We’re still working on confirming the specifics, but as soon as we have a new one on the calendar, we will let you know! Meanwhile, take our OST Insider Quiz, to see how many of the band’s inside jokes and catch-phrases you know.
