Want to forget the deep freeze outside? The Silver Birch String Quartet is sure to help you do just that, transporting audiences to the tango halls and streets of Buenos Aires in Argentina.

Tango Night in Sudbury features a collaboration between the quartet and Argentine tango dancers Roxanna and Fabian Belmonte and world-champion accordionist Alexander Sevastian (member of the acclaimed JUNO-nominated Quartetto Gelato).

The Feb. 1 event is a tribute to one of the world's most famous types of dance, and features some of the most famous tangos ever written, as well as music by the great Astor Piazzolla.

Originating in the slums of Buenos Aires and Montevideo, the dance style has became popular throughout the world, and in 2009 was listed by UNESCO among the "Intangible Cultural Heritage Lists" at the request of the governments of Argentina and Uruguay.

Featuring impressive footwork and passionate music in one of Sudbury's finest technical venues, this will be an unforgettable evening with some of Canada's finest artists in collaboration, and will be an evening of hot music for a cold night in Sudbury.

The event takes place starting at 8 p.m. at the Collège Boréal auditorium. Tickets cost $20 for adults and $15 for students, and are available for purchase at the college's box office, as well as the Fromagerie Elgin and Jett Landry Music.

The Belmontes will also be hosting a dance workshop Feb. 2 from 12-2 p.m. at the Living With Lakes Centre.
