“THE SOUNDS OF CHORO IN THE CITY OF JAZZ”

OPENING CONCERT

 NOV. 10TH @ 8PM

 

 



Latin American Cultural Week in New York City (LACW)presented by PAMAR

The opening concert will feature a crossover from Classical to Popular Choro music. Those who appreciate the genuine sound of Brazilian instrumental music will have the opportunity to enjoy the 3rd Annual “International Choro Festival” in the City of New York. The Brazilian Music Foundation (BMF), in partnership with Asuos Productions, will present the III Annual International Choro Festival (ChoroFest), with a variety of interesting performances. The Festival collaborators aim to involve different cultures in an exchange of artistic talents between the U.S. and Brazil.

The festival will pay tribute to Chiquinha Gonzaga, one of the most important feminine figures of Brazilian popular music of all time. And since everything ends in Samba, of course they couldn’t miss the opportunity to celebrate 100 Years of Samba.
