This year Tom will present a brief history of dance music and illustrate it with a diverse selection of dances. 

1-hour program will culminate with the most famous Fandango in the history of music, written for 18-th century Spanish aristocrat and guitar virtuoso Marquis de Benavent by Luigi Boccherini. Boccherini's Fandango captures the essence of Spanish folklore with contrasting lyrical and passionate moments, pulsating castanet rhythms and rasgueados.

Talk to performers and enjoy light refreshments after the performance.

Tom performs annually free of charge for the benefit of Mt Best Hall Community Association and the Hall maintenance.

Tom Chalko (guitar) plays Adagio from Concierto de Aranjuez by Joaquin Rodrigo.
