PRESIDIO SESSIONS – Friday Evenings at 7 pm

About Presidio Sessions - In the intimate atmosphere of a house concert, experience jazz, contemporary, and classical music, and enjoy opportunities to converse with performers and each other. Offered in partnership with InterMusic SF.

The Berkeley Choro Ensemble is a group of world-class musicians from the San Francisco Bay Area that formed in 2010. The group celebrates the music, culture, and history of Brazil, with a special emphasis on the Choro genre (pronounced “shoro”), a style of music which emerged in the 1800s in Brazil, fusing the music of Brazil’s European immigrants and the native music of Brazil’s indigenous and African-Brazilian population. In particular, the choro sound is somewhat akin to a combination of European classical music, ragtime, and blues. Our repertoire also includes samba, bossa nova, jazz, and the music of Northeast Brazil.
