SOUNDS OF BRAZIL PDX: 11th ANNUAL CONCERT
Portland's 11th Annual Dia do Choro Concert
Celebrating Brazilian Composers of Choro Music and MORE!

Choro music is roots jazz from Brazil, and considered Brazil's first "urban pop" music. In this unique show you will experience a wide range of pieces of Choro and other genres by many of Brazil's most important 20th century composers, such as Pixinguinha and Jacob do Bandolim.
3 acts in one show!

Come hear the intricate and sultry instrumental melodies of classic choro, the edgy syncopation of modern choro, emotive samba and bossa nova, and other genres. This is a rare opportunity to hear a wide range of composers, performed by three diverse acts: mandolin/guitar duo, piano/guitar duo, and quartet of mandolin, 7 string guitar, pandeiro, cavaquinho. Special guests include native Brazilians Alexandra Santos (vocals) and Gabriela Gimenes fFlute).

More about DUO BECAR:
Florence Deutsch started playing the piano at age 6 in her native Sibiu, Romania. She studied at the Scoala Generala de Arte (Classical Piano) and was among finalists in citywide, and regional piano competitions. Even as the Iron Curtain prevented many from traveling outside of Eastern Europe, her skills earned her travel to performances in Vienna and Linz, Austria. She later developed a passion for Brazilian music.
Sergio Botelho was born and raised in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and started playing the guitar at age 10, soon becoming fascinated by the sultry rhythms and lush harmonies in the music of his homeland. He later fell in love with classical guitar, and today can feel at home playing both popular and erudite music.

More about RIO CON BRIO (Mandolin/Guitar)
Guitarist Mike Burdette and mandolinist Tim Connell exhibit finesse and passion in their playing, while displaying a sincere love of the choro repertoire and connection to their audience. An evening with Rio Con Brio is a delightful tour of European and New World music as experienced by the mandolin and guitar and as told by two soulful, intelligent, modern musicians  a beautiful intersection of Brazilian rhythm, classical technique and jazz improvisation.
