The Young Patrons of Lincoln Center (YPLC): "Tango on the Rocks"
NEW YORK-JULY 14: The Young Patrons of Lincoln Center (YPLC) host "Tango on the Rocks" on Monday, July 14, 2008 at Damrosch Park, on 62nd Street between Columbus and Amsterdam, New York, NY. Young Patrons of Lincoln Center (YPLC) Celebrate Summer with the US Debut of Argentina’s Orquesta Típica Imperial. The Young Patrons of Lincoln Center (YPLC) joined with hundreds of young professionals for an evening of dancing under the stars to the torrid tango music of Orquesta Típica Imperial, who were performing as part of Lincoln Center’s annual Midsummer Night Swing series. "Tango on the Rocks" included dance instruction for those looking to learn or polish their tango moves, as well as cocktails and authentic Argentinean cuisine. In between sets of the orchestra, DJ Carlos Quiroga spun South American beats for continuous dancing. "Tango on the Rocks" Co-chairs April Thibeault and Cari Widmyer, noted that the night brought together a number of the young professional organizations of Lincoln Center, including the Young Friends of the Film Society, Young Associates of the Metropolitan Opera, and the Juilliard Club of the Juilliard School. "It’s a Lincoln Center-wide celebration for young professionals, and a way to attract new members," says Thibeault. "It also is an example of how YPLC showcases for our members the very latest in world-class music," added Widmyer. Orquesta Típica Imperial is making its debut performance in the United States at the YPLC event.
