Choro das 3

The Kensington Concert Series present Choro das 3 a warm and extremely talented family group from Brazil who will delight us with traditional Choro music of their country. Choro (pronounced SHOH-roh) is best described in American terms as "the New Orleans jazz of Brazil." It is a complex popular musical form based on improvisation, and like New Orleans jazz, blues, or ragtime, grew from a formalized musical structure and many worldly influences. But to the people of South America, choro is Brazil. It is life.

Barron Ryan "Classical Meets Cool" (solo piano)

This will be a great opportunity to hear this outstanding pianist. This will be a Kensington Concert Series presentation, but held had the lovely Kristen Greene Recital Hall at Greene Music in Miramar. Tickets, $30. Click here for tickets.


Barron Ryan's love for music has always been divided. He grew up in a house filled with the sounds of everything ranging from Chopin to Glenn Miller to Isaac Hayes. So when it comes to his own performing, he's not content drawing on just one of those influences; he combines them all into an adventure thats vintage yet fresh, historical yet hip, classic yet cool. Barron engages the audience in a musical dialogue as he answers questions and gives insight about the music he plays. Breaking down the invisible wall between performer and audience, he allows the listener to become a participant. Whether youre looking for music with more heritage or more edge, Barron Ryan will give you a performance thats timeless.
