From Brazil to the World

From Brazil to the World

On Monday, December 9th, 2013, at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts, Brazilian Voices delivered its latest edition of the educational program From Brazil to the World. This interactive event about Brazilian culture, music, rhythms and dance was made possible through Brazilian Voices partnership with the Broward Center for the Performing Arts and the support of Professional Dancers Andréa and Fábio Barros, Percussionists from Samba RJ and students and instructors performers from Mangueira Capoeira. The program was presented in two one hour performances to a full house of enthusiastic Broward School students who interacted with performers showing true interest and appreciation.

“As Head of Cultural and Educational Affairs at the Consulate General of Brazil in Miami, I have always been in close contact with Brazilian Voices, as the Consulate always strives to sponsor and support the vocal group and their different programs. Throughout the last three years, I was able to experience their work in a variety of environments: large-scale concerts, presentations at the hospital the “Arts and Healing” program, and even small private events. However, I had never had the opportunity to watch a presentation from the program “From Brazil to the World”.

Even though Loren Oliveira had described the events to me, and even commented on the children’s, nothing could have prepared me for the joyous merriment I witnessed when I finally attended one of the program’s presentations. A whirlwind of happiness, pride and excitement hit me while I watched the children being enveloped by a narrative of our history, traditions and music. This is a wonderful, unique program that brings children closer to Brazilian culture and helps build friendship between the US and Brazil.”

“As Director of Education at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts, I wish to acknowledge that the Broward Center is very excited and proud to be a partner with the performance group, Brazilian Voices. Through this unique partnership, thousands of students in Broward County Schools have been exposed to the culture, language, history, and art forms specific to the country of Brazil. Through exciting interactive stage performances, as well as through distance learning, the Broward Center serves as a satellite classroom which allows students to become immersed in Arts integration, at our theater, as they attend these special educational shows that are aligned with the Florida State Standards and Core Curriculum. The content of these shows are connected with classroom curriculum and engaged learning experiences to strengthen learning and student achievement. Bravo to Brazilian Voices for making Brazil ‘come alive’ for our students in Broward County.”
