Performing Arts: Choro Meu

Wednesday, May 8, 2019 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm

Join us for an afternoon of soulful Brazilian traditions.

Jean-Sylvain Negre, the band leader of the ensemble CHORO MEU, is a composer of original works for the nylon string guitar and small un-amplified ensembles. In this program he plays Choro (pronounced : "shoro”), a genre germane to samba, which blends Baroque technique, European and Native south American melodies with African poly-rhythms. Expect a cornucopia of spirited, warm, joyful, meditative Brazilian compositions which will transform your life. In addition, he will share a few moments of his original compositions, all inspired by classical technique and latin rhythms.
