Are you on the hunt for a cheap and romantic date night? You're in luck, because Cortango Orquesta
performs a free show at 7:30 p.m. tonight at Public Media Commons (3653 Olive Street; www.slso.org
). The group comprises members of the Saint Louis Symphony, including Cally Banham, who is herself a trained social tango dancer. Once you know that, is it any surprise that the group came together in part to play music suitable for social dances? Cortango Orquesta plays the popular hits of the good old days of tango orchestras, as well as original compositions.
