Mark Hilliard Wilson: The Last Milonga

The Last Milonga: contemporary sounds in guitar and composition from Argentina, Brazil, Mexico and Venezuela. Music of Ricardo Zohn Muldon, Quiqui Sinesi, Carlos Moscardini, Astor Piazzolla and more.

Mark Hilliard Wilson presents a short concert exploring contemporary composers from Latin America. The evening will feature both the familiar, even classic tangos and also experimental music from Venezuela, but all of it derived from folkloric influences.

Mark is known for his performances on the first Friday of the month at St. James Cathedral, as the founder and director of the Seattle Guitar Orchestra, for his recordings with Sarah Bassingthwaighte, and his collaborations with composers from around the world, most notably with Ukrainian composer Oleg Boyko, who has written two concertos for Mark and Nigerian composer Taiwo Adegoke as well as a number of pieces for Seattle Guitar orchestra.
