Nebraska Concerts

Sunday, May 28, at 1 p.m. Central on Nebraska Concerts:

Buenos-Aires-born, Latin Grammy-winning pianist, composer and arranger Pablo Zeigler is one of the most important figures in Argentine New Tango, the vibrant musical hybrid of classic tango, American Jazz and European Art Music. “He is cool, understated and makes everything look natural and easy’”, wrote the Los Angeles Times, continuing ‘just as a really suave Tango dancer seems not to move with feet but on wheels, Ziegler skates the keyboard.”

On Nebraska Concerts this week we'll hear Pablo Ziegler and his Quartet for New Tango perform live at Lincoln's Lied Center. We'll also hear organist Thomas Heywood playing the majestic Lied Organ at First Plymouth Church in Lincoln.
