The Zanesville Concert Association presents its final show in its 80th Celebration Season on Sunday with “Tango from Heaven” Anna Maria Mendieta’s Tango del Cielo at Secrest Auditorium.

A combination of Latin styles, the multimedia performance features music, dance and drama as a tribute to silent films, according to a media release from the ZCA. The Latin blend of styles includes Argentine Tango, Flamenco, Spanish Classical and Latin Jazz.

The performing artists — playing harp, violin, cello and percussion — will be complemented by on-stage dancers and guest singer Tiano Vas.

“The program blends the heavenly sounds of classical harp and strings with the fiery Tango of Argentina and the lush music of Spain,” the release states.

The artists for the concert association’s upcoming 81st season will be announced during the show Sunday.
