A Little Bit About Brazil

RReaganDoralHS

On March 17, 2015, at 9:00 am, Brazilian Voices had the privilege of presenting its Culture and Education Program “A Little Bit About Brazil” at the Ronald Reagan Doral Senior High School. The program, which is a compact version of the acclaimed “From Brazil to the World”, has already been presented with great success in small venues, such as other schools and museums.

Students from Mrs. Beatriz Cariello’s Portuguese class were among the selected group of 500 who attended the performance at the school auditorium. The audience embarked with great enthusiasm on the interactive journey through Brazilian rhythms, music and culture. Participants learned basic facts about Brazilian culture while being exposed to a variety of styles such as Forró, Baião, Brazilian jazz or Bossa Nova, Samba, and Rock. The students joined Brazilian Voices by singing a widely recognized song and by performing a “batucada de boca”, a vocal percussion samba experiment.

Brazilian Voices celebrates the Independence of Brazil and South Florida’s cultural diversity. On Sunday, September 7 at 3:00 pm Brazilian Voices had the pleasure to perform for the Friends of the Boca Raton Library, during one of its scheduled events for the Sunday Matinee Music Series.

The Sunday Matinee Music Series events and concerts are sponsored by the Friends of the Boca Raton Library, a volunteer not-for-profit organization dedicated to making public libraries an important part of the cultural core of Boca Raton. This particular event was part of a celebration of the Independence of Brazil and a recognition of South Florida’s cultural diversity. Over one hundred and fifty guests came to the Boca Raton Downtown Library to join this celebration and experience a little bit of Brazilian music and culture. The audience was delighted by the carefully selected repertoire of classic Bossa-Nova and Brazilian Jazz performed by this acclaimed vocal group composed of female voices and the response was truly inspiring.
