Bandoneonist, and leader of the acclaimed bay area sextet Redwood Tango Ensemble, Charles Gorczynski composes music without stylistic restrictions, fundamentally centered in tango with influences in modern jazz and contemporary chamber music. He has toured extensively in North America and Italy, including performances in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Portland, Seattle, Chicago, Montreal, New York, Pisa, and Rome.

Redwood Tango Ensemble was the featured orchestra for Chicago Tango Week 2013 and 2015, and has shared concert bills with Kronos Quartet, Del Sol Quartet, Alejandro Ziegler Quartet, Rob Reich Quintet, and members of Tango Sin Fin. Charles was a guest bandoneonist with the California Symphony and San Jose Chamber Orchestra, toured as bandoneonist with the Argentine ensemble Tango BC Trío, and premiered his own works with the Chamber Music Northwest Summer Festival in Portland. His compositions and collaborative works with Colorlist (w/ Charles Rumback and John Hughes) and Strongsender (w/ Elliot Ross and Thomas Faulds) are released with the record labels 482 Music, Serein, Ropeadope Records, and Front Forty Press.

In 2016 Charles released an album of original tangos Unison", and subsequently was awarded the MGP grant from the SF Friends of Chamber Music to compose a set of new works in the genre. Currently Redwood Tango Ensemble is expanding this set into a new record, exploring the edges where contemporary tango and chamber music meet, to be released in 2018.
