Antioch Piano Trio to Premier on School Sisters of St. Francis Campus Saturday, September 1

MILWAUKEE - eMusicWire -- No other dance music portrays the message of "I love you, I love you not, I miss you" better than tango. The audience is hooked by the drama, and the rhythm, melodic line, and storytelling are quintessentially Latin.

On Saturday, September 14, at 2 p.m., the School Sisters of St. Francis will be sponsoring a presentation of tangos and other Latin music in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month at St. Joseph Center (the sisters' south side Milwaukee campus at 1501 S. Layton Blvd. (Greenfield Ave. at 27th St.).

All are invited to "Tango Familia," the world premiere performance of the Antioch Trio. Listeners will be inspired by the outstanding talents of Jonah Kartman, violin; Stefan Karman, cello; and Jeannie Yu, piano. Cellist and pianist are husband and wife and also Juilliard School of Music graduates who are well-recognized performers here in Milwaukee.
