PASO launches its new season with The Soul of Tango at the Kennedy Center's Terrace Theater on October 11 at 7:30 pm. Highlighting the grand master of nuevo tango, Astor Piazzolla, PASO expertly conveys the authentic swing and musicality of Argentine tango like no other ensemble in the DC area.

Spotlight On...

Mexican composer, Arturo Marquez, captures the charms of the Veracruz dance halls, with his series of danzones, which have now been performed in the most famous concert halls throughout the world.


. . . Sergio Buslje, with whom I sang at a benefit concert at the Organization of American States in Washington, DC. Given the daunting task of preparing a highly gifted but nevertheless youth orchestra with minimal rehearsals, Mr. Buslje gave a dynamic reading of zarzuelas and popular Spanish music. It was a pleasure working with him.

-Placido Domingo

The Orchestra accompanied Chita Rivera and me at the Latino Inaugural Celebration on January 20, 2013. In spite of such short notice, the Orchestra and its leadership rose to the occasion and because of its level of professionalism and musicality, the performance was quite a success.

- Rita Moreno

[PASO] is truly a gem and I commend you for your commitment and dedication to the art form.

– Robert Pullen, Director of Special Programming, The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.
