Performance is a central component of every student's education at The New School's School of Jazz and Contemporary Music, and the Ensemble Showcases are where faculty-led student groups showcase their talent and creativity.
Brazilian Choro Ensemble is dedicated to Brazil's unique tradition of virtuoso instrumental music, blending European and Afro-Brazilian dance forms with Classical and Jazz foundations. Repertoire spans 150 years: from early nationalist composers Nazareth, Gonzaga and Medeiros to 20th century masters Pixinguinha, Gnattali, Jacob do Bandolim and contemporary innovators Hermeto Pascoal, Jovino Santos Neto and Guinga.
Presented by The New School's School of Jazz and Contemporary Music.
