- Lisandro Adrover
Op 15 2004 maart organiseerde de NPS in samenwerking met Muziekcentrum Vredenburg in Utrecht een bijzonder concert. Op het podium van de Grote Zaal traden de strijkers van het Metropole Orkest op met het Argentijnse ensemble 'Orquesta de Lisandro Adrover'. Ze speelden authentieke tango-stukken, in nieuwe, verfrissende arangementen. Dit concert is nog steeds online te beluisteren!
