Doors open at 1:30pm for a reception offering wine and light fare included in the $35 ticket price. Tickets can be purchased on Eventbrite.com or by calling (831) 624-7491.
The ensemble navigates 20th century Brazilian popular music, emphasizing Brazil’s first original musical genre, Choro, while also showcasing original works and inventive arrangements.

The trio recently completed a national tour that included a featured performance at the Chamber Music Association in New York. They’ve also appeared at many notable jazz venues including the Healdsburg Jazz Festival and jazz programs at colleges and universities around the country.
