Choro das 3 Workshop

at Rhodes College

In this introductory choro workshop, we will explore the Jacob do Bandolim classic, "Assanhado" (provacative) and, if time permits, also "Apanei-te, cavaquinho!" (I've got you, cavaquinho!) by the great Ernesto Nazareth.


The links above give one idea of each tune - but these are both very popular in choro circles, with an immensely wide range of interpretation. For original instrumentations of each, here is Assanhado, and here is Apanhei-te, cavaquinho.) This workshop will be aimed at having fun and learning a little about how it all works.


Please sign up at the concert (table in rear) to let us know you are coming. Looking forward to seeing you!
