RICH HINRICHSEN, VOCALIST

Wednesday, October 23

Rich Hinrichsen baritone, will perform a program of vocal tangos from Argentina by CARLOS GARDEL and ALFREDO LE PERA, and others. 

Rich is a singer, jazz pianist, and bassist. Over the years Rich developed a love for tango, which began when he saw Al Pacino play a blind man who danced tango in “Scent of a Woman.” He discovered that the tango in the movie was written by the great Carlos Gardel, and after hearing Gardel sing, was sold on learning those beautiful songs. Rich travelled to Buenos Aires to visit the last resting place of Carlos Gardel and to learn from singer Micaela Vita to bring tango to life and discover his own singing style. He has recently published a book of vocal tangos arranged for high and low voices.
