CONCERT: From Rags to Samba! The Influence of Brazilian Chorinho Music


Monday, August 8, 2016
7:00 pm - 8:00 pm



Celebrate Brazil – Home of the 2016 Summer Olympics!

FOR ALL AGES – Jazz artist Sue Maskaleris presents a lively music program on the similarities between American ragtime and “chorinho,” a Brazilian music style from the 1800’s. With her talented Rio-born partner Itaiguara on guitar and string bass, they then take us through samba and bossa nova. Some American standards are included.

Pianist/singer and composer/lyricist Sue Maskaleris has worked in NYC and abroad. Her two CDs have garnered critical praise and airplay, her latest one debuting at No. 3 in the US on NPR Jazz and College Radio Charts. Her compositions have won many worldwide contests, including the Thelonious Monk Composition Competition, where she placed second. Itaiguara tours the world with the living creators of bossa nova: Marcos Valle, Jorge Ben, Roberto Menescal, as well as plays with the “Ella Fitzgerald of Brazil,” Leny Andrade. He is in Sue’s group Trio do Rio and leads one of his own as well.
