Local Artists Of Piazzolla 100 Invite You To Cuartetango String Quartet & Dance At Good Shepherd Chapel And Paint The Music At Southpoint Park For Roosevelt Island Fall For Arts Festival Saturday September 25


Leonardo Suarez Paz and Olga Suarez Paz are Roosevelt Island residents and

Leonardo is the Artistic Director and Olga the Executive Director of
PIAZZOLLA 100 Festival:

… an interdisciplinary performing arts project that showcases a
groundbreaking new style, which draws on the common roots of Tango, Jazz and
Classical Music, as shaped by the culture of African and European migration
to the new world. Celebrating the centennial of Leonardo
Suarez Paz’s mentor and family friend, Astor Piazzolla, who was born in Mar
de Plata, Argentina in 1921 and grew up in New York City,  the project
honors the legacy of this revolutionary composer by demonstrating the genre
as a complex, evolving art form, while challenging  artistic
and sociocultural constructs.

Our mission is to further the genre of Nuevo Tango by elevating its artistic standards
through live performances, recordings, publications and education, by
demonstrating its evolution as an entire culture through every form of
expression – music, dance, interdisciplinary work, visual art, literature
and cinema. We celebrate Latin, African and European cultural
heritages, the contributions of immigrants  and women to the genre,
while relating its history to Buenos Aires and New York City and affording
an opportunity for artists across generations, cultures, genres and
disciplines to create new work and express through a renewed artistic idiom
of cultural unity and inclusion….

Leonardo & Olga Suarez Paz were featured in the Dear New York TV program earlier this month. Watch this video to learn more about the artistic Roosevelt Island couple.
