Live Music: The London Tango Orchestra Escuela

About The London Tango Orchestra Escuela

The London Tango Orchestra Escuela is a new and exciting group of Argentine Tango musicians, coming together to play live music. Their Director is Caroline Pearsall, co-founder of the original London Tango Orchestra.

The Orchestra at Milonga Abierta

Learning Tango have been supporting the London Tango Orchestra Escuela since they formed in late 2017; they've played several sessions for us, and each one has been longer and better. We're very happy to continue with this support, and we hope you enjoy it.

This is a lovely opportunity for you to dance to live music, re-creating the atmosphere of Buenos Aires for you as part of our milonga, so don't miss it!
