PORT ANGELES — Get ready for flash and flair of tango.

The Juan de Fuca Festival of the Arts will present the Seattle City Sextet and “Tangoheart”‘ tonight, Friday, at 7:30 at the Port Angeles High School Auditorium, 304 E. Park Ave.

Complete with dancers and narrative, “Tangoheart” presents the story of tango’s most controversial figure, Astor Piazzolla.

“Tangoheart” is performed by Bertram Levy and the Seattle City Sextet with dancers Patty Leverett and Kevin Possio. The Seattle City Sextet is dedicated to performing the classic orchestration of the golden age of tango and the modern works of Piazzolla. It is one of 12 tango sextets in the world playing this intriguing music.

The Seattle City Sextet is made up of Bertram Levy, bandoneon; Traci Hoveskeland, cello; Claude Ginsburg, violin; Kat Fritz, violin; Andy Carr, piano; and Spencer Hoveskeland, bass.

Leverett is one of the pioneers of the Seattle tango scene and she and Rossio have studied with the great masters of tango in Argentina and the United States.

An overnight storm passed through but not before depositing about 3 inches of soft powder, which melted rapidly as the day warmed. The blast of snowfall was largely confined to the area around Port Townsend and Port Hadlock overnight into Tuesday morning on the North Olympic Peninsula. Another weather system was coming in on Tuesday afternoon and is expected to drop rain in the lowlands and snow in the mountains on Wednesday and early Thursday, according to meteorologist Jacob DeFlitch with the National Weather Service in Seattle.
