CT TANGO ENSEMBLE with Buona Sera Signorina, Nicola Cencherle (tenor) and Melanie Scholtz


8:15 pm – 9:45 pm

CT Tango Ensemble presents “Buona Sera Signorina”, featuring Melanie Scholtz – Jazz Singer & Nicola Cencherle – Tenor
Our own award winning & Internationally acclaimed Cape Town Tango Ensemble is taking us on another romantic journey. This show is not the usual “Strictly Tango” show that we normally see from them. This will be a real “cross-over” show. They team up with 2 vocalists – very well loved by the audiences and very different at the same time.
Nici Cencherle (Tenor) has charmed the audiences in South Africa and his native Italy on the Opera stage and other occasions for several decades.
Melanie Scholtz (Jazz Singer) is flying high in her carreer locally and internationally. After winning prize after prize on the Jazz scene in Europe we are absolutely lucky to catch her performing at home again.
CT Tango Ensemble also has 2 other additions to their team to match with the rest of the cast. Instead of the usual Violin, we will have a Saxophone. The drums are not really traditional for Argentinean Tango but very important in this show.
The Journey – you can take it just as a beautiful evening filled with Music under the Stellenbosch stars, or as the Journey of Tango music with all its influences of Mediterranean, African & Jazz cultures. You can expect to hear some well known Neapolitan songs, Jazz Standards and perhaps some Tango. And with the magic of music under the stars, we don’t know what else might happen!!!???
