Enjoy the beauties of Buenos Aires and its people...
A rare opportunity to experience the musical life and culture of the city of Buenos Aires, Argentina by signing on to the Last Frontier Organ Tour this coming May 26-June 3, 2007
There be organs, of course some fantastic European instruments by Europe's finest builders among them Cavaille-Coll, Walcker, Serrasii. Early music concerts, a couple tango lessons, visits to the cultural monuments of that great city and a harpsichord recital are planned for Buenos Aires.

By now, we have just programmed some concerts scheduled already last year for this one, and will be anounced when confirmated.

Sugested by many of the people who attended the formers editions, the Cycle will be supported by a $20 Contribution Bonus (argentine pesos = USD 7) for concerts. Like last year, we added the chance to support the Cycle as Benefactor or Protector, giving them admision free for two people to all events and the mention of them in printed programs, and an enhanced mention or advertisement for Sponsors. ...
