Orquesta Victoria

November 5. Many perceive tango as purely dance music, but as Orquesta Victoria, which visits the Bearsville Theater this month, makes clear, that's not the rule. Like jazz, its American cousin, tango served such functions early on but later branched out into more ambitious realms (see the neuvo tango style of Astor Piazolla). The 12-piece Orquesta Victoria, for example, specializes in the works of Argentinian American composer Deborah Simcovich, whose recent creations chronicle life under her homeland's brutal right-wing dictatorship in the 1970s. Based in tango's crucible of Buenos Aires, the youthful ensemble formed in 2010 and has performed abroad for heads of state. (Josh Ritter returns November 12; 10,000 Maniacs make the scene November 17.) 8pm. $25. Bearsville. (845) 679-4406;
