Take me Bach to Brazil!
Get ready for a show of a lifetime…Bach to Brazil, held at the Lincoln center, New York on May 9th, is to unite several Brazilian musical legends live on stage with Orpheus Chamber Orchestra to offer an exciting cross-genre collaboration.
The program includes selections by Brazilian giants Villa Lobos, Jobim, Pixinguinha, and Baden Powell as well as popular works by European masters Bach and Chopin, framed in unexpected ways. The event will showcase the kaleidoscopic palette of European inspiration and Brazilian innovation, featuring singer/songwriter Ivan Lins, percussionist Cyro Baptista, and guitarist/composers Juarez Moreira and Chico Pinheiro.
All proceeds from the Bach to Brazil Gala will support Access Orpheus and the Orpheus Institute, the orchestra’s signature music education programs that provides free musical instruction and a look at democratic leadership at work to the next generation of musicians and university students.
