V CHORO FESTIVAL(ChoroFest 2019)


Brazilian Music Foundation is proud to announce its 5th-Annual Choro Festival. SAMBA-CHORO This year we have a very interesting lineup of Samba-Choro with very talented musical participants from all over the US. More information will be posted soon! *** Those who appreciate the genuine sound of Brazilian instrumental music will have the opportunity to enjoy the IV International Choro Festival in the City of New York. Brazilian Music Foundation (BMF), in partnership with Bossa Magazine, and Asuos Productions, will present the 5th Annual International Choro Festival, with a variety of interesting performances. The Festival collaborators will incorporate different cultures and participate in artistic exchanges between Brazil and the US. The Festival also aspires to promote and preserve the “Choro” – a rich instrumental music tradition since the nineteenth century, known as the oldest musical style throughout Brazil. Our goal is to bring together local musicians with fellow musicians from Brazil and other countries to present traditional Choro as well as new compositions. The festival first occurred in August 2015, and it was a great success. Due to this positive reception, we will continue with an annual presentation. The event will provide an opportunity for everyone to learn about one of the oldest Brazilian musical genres, the Choro and the Brazilian Jazz. ** About Choro Brazilian Choro is considered Brazil’s first “urban pop” music. There are over 30 different types of rhythms in Brazilian Music. By presenting the diversity of our rhythms, we hope to encourage diverse musicians, music students, adults, and children to engage in creating music with a dynamic communicative style that is energetic, fun, creative, and very inspiring! *** Please note: All OPERA America facilities are handicapped accessible. ***
