The Che Bandoneon International Competition is open to any bandoneon player over 18 years of age. The competition is hosted by the Stowe Tango Music Festival and sponsored by the Argentine Tango Society. The Competition’s mission is to discover bandoneon talent and to promote and nurture artistic excellence in tango music worldwide.

Based on a Youtube audition, we have invited four international finalists to join the festival’s Tango Academy program to work with the Stowe Tango Music Festival Orchestra for this week. For the finals of the competition, each finalist performed a bandoneon solo and the lead bandoneon part of two tango works in the style of orquesta típica.
