Tickets on Sale for April 6 Choro Performance


This post refers to an event in the past. Please visit the Centrum homepage for links to current workshops and performances.


Tickets are now on sale for Centrum’s April 6, 2013 Choro performance at the Joseph F. Wheeler Theater. The show begins at 7:30pm, and Centrum will provide free parking passes at the Fort Worden entrance gate.

Choro is the lively and engaging street music of Brazil 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 the acclaimed percussionist Alexandre Lora who join with the legendary Seattle-based Brazilian composer / pianist Jovino Santos Neto. They’ll be joined by the genre-busting clarinetist Anat Cohen, making her first-ever appearance in Port Townsend.

Whether you enjoy sultry sweet ballads or lively sambas, you’ll love this concert.
