Cally Banham and Cortango Release "Cor Christmas"

Cally Banham


Cally Banham is the solo English horn player for the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra. She has her own ensemble Cortango, created as a result of her interest in Argentine tango. The group has collaborated with the Adam Maness Trio and the trombonists from the St. Louis Symphony in a brand new album “Cor Christmas.” It’s an instrumental collection of sacred and secular carols featuring the soulful sound of the English horn and presenting a journey through popular Christmas tunes in a fusion of classical and jazz styles.

Listen in as I chat with Cally about her instrument and this unique project! You can hear sound clips from the album here.

Yours in good music,Mike Goldberg
