- Introduction: Celebration of Brazilian Music, Multi-Group Performance | $15/$20
Choro is to Brazil what jazz is to the US—an urban hybrid of influences from Africa, Europe, and the Western hemisphere, with an emphasis on improvisation. Choro music evokes in turn the carnival of Rio and the cafés of France, Spain, and Portugal. To honor the music’s long tradition, music of legendary choro composers like Pixinguinha, Jacob do Bandolim, Ernesto Nazareth, and Antonio Carlos Jobim will take center stage, alongside more contemporary sounds, including syncopations derived from later interactions between choro and American jazz and other Brazilian musical forms like bossa nova and samba. Take this opportunity to sample one of the world’s richest musical traditions brought to you by world-class Northwest bands.
