In April the Broward Center partnered with BECON-TV to offer a distance learning workshop with cast members from the Broadway tour of The Color Purple to local Broward County students and students in Ghana, Africa. This year, they will expand their distance learning and work with Brazilian Voices on such an opportunity.
BECON-TV will tape the Brazilian Voices – Cultural and Educational Program: Afro-Brazil performance for school children on December 2nd at Broward Center for the Performing Arts. BECON-TV will tape an interview with some of the Afro-Brazil singers, directors and dancers later the same day, which will be broadcast to select classrooms. The interview will feature footage of the actual performance at the beginning of the segment or interspersed throughout. Brazilian Voices is happy to contribute in this program that will allowed children in Ghana to learn about African influence in Brazil.
