Versatile as soloist and ensemble player with groups ranging from orchestra with chorus to duo formations, Winnie has enjoyed playing tango on concert stages as well as tango festivals in different parts of the world.
Her repertoire includes Misatango, music by Astor Piazzolla, tandas of golden-era tangos, milongas and valses by D’Arienzo, Biagi, Pugliese, Troilo, and Di Sarli, among others, for different ensemble sizes. Winnie can also bring to you a concert-length program of solo piano tangos, with commentary if desired.
A classically-trained now-tango pianist and tango dancer herself, she appreciates both worlds: there is great joy dancing to the swing of solidly-executed golden-era tango classics, as well as internalizing quietly as a listener the emotional and musical depth that the Argentine Tango style embodies, in arrangements new and old. It is always worth remembering that all music was once new; for that, Winnie will continue to bring timeless traditional and refreshing new tango arrangements to dancers and listeners alike, whenever the occasion calls for them.
As a dancer, Winnie firmly believes that the live music experience is uniquely inspiring and irreplaceable. Pairing live music milongas with musicality workshops, among other ideas, has been rewarding for both musicians and dancers.
