Guests swooned and swayed at the National Museum of Women in the Arts following the world premier of actor Robert Duvall’s tango composition, “Volvere,” on November 19. Duvall and his new bride, Luciana Pedraza, served as honorary co-chairs of the gala, and performed with Quin Tango, a world-renowned music group and finalist at New York City’s 2004 International Tango Competition. Event chairwoman Dianne Alfandre offered tango lessons to guests prior to the occasion, preparing them to dance alongside the skilled experts. The evening raised $50,000 for the Shenson Chamber Music Concerts, an annual concert series run by artistic directors Gilan Tocco Corn and Linda Hohenfeld Slatkin.
