The Embassy of Argentina in Wellington is pleased to invite music lovers to a wonderful piano concert by the talented Argentinian pianist, Ms. Marcela Fiorillo. The concert will take place in the beautiful church of St. Andrews on the Terrace on October 5th at 6pm. It is completely free of charge, as it is sponsored by the Embassy.

The concerts aim is to share part of the history and content of Argentine Music, by performing two worldwide known composers of our land: Astor Piazzolla and Alberto Ginastera. Both reflected the musical landscape of Argentina as a whole, from folk elements coming from the immensity of the "Pampas", upholding the "Gaucho" figure, to the urban music of Buenos Aires and its dazzling nightlife.

Music is, undoubtedly, a binding factor for different cultures and backgrounds, and so this Concert "Argentina Mágica: Astor Piazzolla and Alberto Ginastera, Argentinas Most International Composers", represents an opportunity to learn more about Argentinas culture, and of course, enjoy some very good music.

She is currently living in Australia, where she teaches piano and maintains an active performance schedule.
