Horizons Concert Series presents ‘Brazilian Choro,’ Brazil’s traditional musical art form

Travel to South America for a unique musical journey through Brazil’s greatest musical art form, choro. The Horizons Concert Series, sponsored by the NAU School of Music, presents Duo Violão + 1 for their performance of “Brazilian Choro” at 7:30 p.m. on March 2 in Kitt Recital Hall.

Duo Violão + 1 started with two guitarists, Rogério Souza and Edinho Gerber, and the desire to explore and expand the musical possibilities of playing two violões, or Brazilian guitars. In 2019, Bay Area percussionist Ami Molinelli joined the group.

The ensemble navigates 20th-century Brazilian popular music while also showcasing the artists’ original works and inventive arrangements. Choro is known for its rhythmic and harmonic permutations. The group released its first album, “A Historia de Choro,” in 2019.

“Brazilian Choro” is cosponsored by NAU’s Center for International Education, College of Arts and Letters, Department of Global Languages and Cultures and Latin American Studies.

General admission is $25 and $17.50 for seniors, NAU faculty and staff. Children (17 years and under) and NAU/CCC students are free with a valid ID. Tickets can be purchased in advance through the Central Ticketing Office. A $2 processing fee will be added to tickets purchased at the door.
