From Latin America with Love

Paulhino Garcia and Julie Koidin of Dois no Choro.

This Valentine’s Day, the Driehaus Museum is teaming up with the talented South American music duo Dois no Choro and our culinary neighbors, the modern Latin restaurant Nacional 27, to create the perfect romantic evening.

To start, ticket-holders to From Latin America with Love: A Night of Tango, Music and Song receive a special 20% discount on dinner at Nacional 27 on February 7. (Reservations are recommended. To see the menu, click here.)

Then, guests can plan to arrive at the Driehaus Museum after doors open at 6:30 p.m. and take a self-guided evening tour of our galleries. At 7:30, Julie Koidin of Dois no Choro will give a tango talk and lead everyone in learning the first steps of the tango “salida.” Following the tango lesson, you’ll enjoy South American-inspired sweets and bubbly in the Driehaus Museum ballroom until the start of Dois no Choro’s performance, which will complete the evening with tangos, waltzes, and sambas from a rich, sensuous South American repertoire.

Tickets are $45 for Driehaus Museum members and $55 for the public. For more information, head over to the Programs page.
