Choro returns to Centrum! Come enjoy this lively and engaging concert on Saturday, April 14, 2012 at the Joseph F. Wheeler Theater at Fort Worden State Park, beginning at 7:30 pm.
Choro is the spirited Brazilian street music that pre-dates the Bossa Nova. Now a Port Townsend tradition, this annual event produced by Centrum features five masters of this delightful musical style who come together for the first time to perform a wide range of Choro favorites.
Direct from Brazil, experience the artistry of the world renowned mandolinist Dudu Maia, 7- string guitar virtuoso Henrique Neto, and percussionist Alexandre Lora who join with the legendary Seattle-based Brazilian composer/pianist Jovino Santos Neto and Andy Connell, the clarinet virtuoso from America’s top Choro ensemble — Choro Famoso.
Whether you enjoy sultry sweet ballads or lively sambas, you’ll love this concert.
