Noelle Boucherat, Judy Whitlock and Jonathan Stomberg go back a long way as members of the Plymouth Symphony Orchestra and form the core of Tango Sonoro. Our backgrounds are mainly in classical music.
We have been playing Argentine Tango Music since 2010.
Recently we have been joined by Laura Deignan, who also played in the Plymouth Symphony for a while and who is currently studying for a degree in music at the Royal Welsh College in Cardiff. Whilst her instrument the clarinet is not usually associated with tango music, it is related to the bandoneon as both are reed instruments. It compliments the other instruments and suits the tango very well.
Argentine Tango is beautiful in its instrumental form, but when sung, it has yet more depth. Tango Sonoro is lucky to have the versatile Judy Whitlock, who is able to play the double bass and sing at the same time. Many of our pieces feature both her playing and singing.
