Seinsommartango 2016

Skjermbilde 2016-09-04 kl. 09.28.27Ta med kopp og oransje kle, men ikkje nøtter!
Me ber alle om å ta med sin eigen kopp/krus til bruk under kurs og milonga gjennom helga så sparer me miljøet 🙂 
Lørdagskvelden blir det «oransj milonga», så me oppfordrar alle til å ta på litt oransj i form av klede, sko eller anna. Oransj kan fint miksast med svart om du ynskjer. Nokon av deltakarane har sterk nøtteallergi, så me ber alle om å ikkje ta med nøtter på hotellet!
NB! Alle som vil eta på hotellet, må gi beskjed om dette på mail!

Orange milonga

Bring some orange clothes or shoes and we will color the beautiful dance room at Sauda Fjordhotell in the happiest color. You are allowed to mix it with black if you prefer that, but please add at least a small hint of orange!

Orchestra workshops

This year we invite musicians to bring your instruments and sign up for two special orchestra workshops. The workshops will be led by Mustafa Elmas, who is a highly experienced composer, conductor and bandoneon player. The workshops will be designed for musicians at different levels. We will work together on four contrasting pieces of tango music: a traditional tango, a passionate tango (such as Pugliese’s La Yumba), a waltz, and a milonga. The music scores will be made available to participants well in advance, so everyone has the opportunity to practice the pieces beforehand.

In addition to the workshops, there will be spaces to practice during the weekend.

When you sign up please let us know which instrument you will be playing. We will contact you with more details of the arrangements.

We need to have your inscription for these workshop before 01.07.16!

The organisers are getting moving with plans for 2016!

Komiteen har vore i Sauda og opplevd seinsommar, fjell og eit hotell med sjel og utsikt.
Du må ikkje vera glad i fjord og fjell for å komma på Seinsommartango, men det hjelper 🙂 Sauda-området har fantastisk natur å by på, så ta gjerne ein ekstra dag fri eller spar ei ferieveke til Sauda.
Me gler oss allereie til neste Seinsommar! Velkommen til Saudasjøen!

In English

The organising committee has visited Sauda and experienced late summer, mountain scenery, and an atmospheric hotel with outstanding views. You don’t have to be fond of fjords and mountains to come to Seinsommartango, but it helps :-). The Sauda area has stunning scenery to offer, so take an extra day or two off, or stay for a longer holiday in the area.
We are already looking forward to Seinsommartango 2016! Welcome to Sauda!

Greetings Birgitte, Tim, Mona og Jon Magne
