Brazilian Music Institute Workshop

The University of Florida’s (UF) Brazilian Music Institute (BMI), now in its seventeenth year, will gather outstanding Brazilian musicians for an intensive week of instruction May 22-27, 2017. Thanks in part to a grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, BMI will expand its reach and impact through a partnership with Broward College to bring BMI to South Florida. This year’s BMI, taking place at Broward College, provides unique opportunities for singers, guitarists, percussionists, drummers, pianists and other instrumentalists to study with exceptional musicians such as: Sinhô Francisco, Cesinha, Ulisses Rocha,Welson Tremura, Larry Crook, Vadim Arsky, Alex Berti, Jason Hainsworth, Mike Orta, Scott Wilson, Beatriz Malnic, and the Brazilian Voices. BMI features daily rehearsals and group lessons in Brazilian instrumental music as well as a concluding concert on Friday, May 26, 2017 in Bailey Hall (Davie) entitled Terra Brazil meets Jazz featuring the guest artists and selected BMI participants. We hope you will join us for a week of some of the best of Brazilian music.
