“THE SOUNDS OF CHORO IN THE CITY OF JAZZ”
From Classical to Popular – Choro Music for everyone!
From November 8th-12th, 2017, those who appreciate the genuine sound of Brazilian instrumental music will have the opportunity to enjoy the II International Choro Festival in the City of New York. Brazilian Music Foundation (BMF), in partnership with Asuos Productions, will present the 3rd Annual International Choro Festival (ChoroFest), with a variety of interesting performances. The Festival collaborators aim to involve different cultures and exchange artistic experiences between Brazil and the US.
The festival was first presented in August 2015, and it was a great success. Due to this positive reception, we will continue with an annual presentation. The event will provide the opportunity for everyone to learn about one of the oldest Brazilian musical styles, the Choro.
