2019-06-24 Choro Camp New England - Northampton (MA)

Post by AndoL » Wed Mar 13, 2019 5:26 pm

It is with great pleasure that we announce the inaugural edition of Choro Camp New England, the first music camp on the East Coast of the US devoted to the Brazilian musical tradition of choro, or chorinho. The event will take place on the campus of Smith College in Northampton, MA June 24-30.

We're here to do two things:
  • For musicians who already love the rich musical tradition of choro, we offer an opportunity to study with experts, meet fellow chorões, and play, and play. And play.
  • For newcomers to choro, we offer a gentle, sturdy on-ramp. Really, all we need to do is make the introduction -- this joyful, sophisticated music will take care of the rest.

Both 6 and 7 string guitarists are welcome. Guitar staff will include Henrique Neto of the Escola Brasileira do Choro Raphael Rabello (Brasilia) and Lia Meyer of Choro das Três. Other instructional tracks include winds and fretless strings, bandolim, cavaquinho, accordion/keyboards and pandeiro.
