It initiates his activities in February of 1985 making his debut the 17 of May of the same one Acts in diverse theaters, cultural institutions, clubs, schools etc., in neighbouring localities and cities of the rear area.

After a year of its first performance it makes a concert the 20 of June of 1986 in the Rome Theater. Interested in that concert authorities of National Radio, it is that they spread in form completes the repertoire that that day I offer to the orchestra in the program Walking Tangos that Mr. Mario Keegan directs, same recording taken in alive spread by other transmitters.

During year 1985 “Riachuelo offered its spectacle to the Sur” with book of Horacio Branches. in 1986 it presents/displays a new spectacle called "One hundred Years of Tango" that narrates through the word of actor David Tonelli, the history of the tango from his beginnings, by the end of the century to the present time.

The orchestra counts on an ample repertoire of subjects in which diverse times are reflected: the beginning with violin, flute and guitar and later the incorporation of bandoneón, that although is of German origin, took root so much in our music until identifying itself definitively with the Argentine tango. Violin and piano a tribute to two pioneers of our citizen music, the brothers offers Francisco and Julio De Caro. Advancing in the time one goes to a formation of classic orchestra of the years in which the dance of this I generate was the height of the time. Following the trajectory of the tango it is arrived at the years in which reincorporates the restlessness youth to flute with the aggregate of the electrical guitar. Sometimes also usually it is listened to subjects interpreted by the classic quartet of arcs (Two violins, a viola and violoncelo) also with the participation in this group of flute and a guitar.

And arriving at the present time, they thus appear in scene the members of the orchestra, interpreting some modern subjects like also some classic ones but with orchestrations that enrich them they update.
