Choro Concert with Almir Cortes
This will be an OUTDOOR concert, please dress accordingly. We will change to a nearby home, in case of really bad weather.

Choro (Portuguese pronunciation: [ˈʃoɾu], "cry" or "lament"), popularly called chorinho ("little cry" or "little lament"), is an instrumental Brazilian popular music genre which originated in 19th century Rio de Janeiro. Despite its name, the music often has a fast and happy rhythm. It is characterized by virtuosity, improvisation and subtle modulations, and is full of syncopation and counterpoint. Choro is considered the first characteristically Brazilian genre of urban popular music.

Almir Cortes, who is a visiting professor and San Francisco State University is a superb mandolinist and guitarist. Brian Rice, is one the finest percussionist this side of Brazil, and Colin Walker is a very talented 7-string guitarist from Southern California.

This will be a real treat.

There will be a reception that follows the concert.
