KINETIC and APERIO, Music of the America’s team up for a joint season finale celebrating the sounds of Brazil. Beginning with the rarely-performed ‘Concerto for Percussion and Strings’ by Camargo Guarnieri and Heitor Villa-Lobos’s ‘Bachianas No. 9’, the program continues with a spotlight on Brazilian-American composer and guest artist, Clarice Assad. The alluring song cycle ‘Elementos’, for mixed chamber ensemble, features Assad singing in her native tongue and is followed by the Brazilian rhythms of ‘Three Sketches’ for violin and two guitars and Impressions for string orchestra.
