LONG BEACH, Wash. — The Peninsula Arts Center presents Brazilian choro from Rio Con Brio at 7 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 8. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
Rio Con Brio began as a vehicle for virtuoso mandolinist Tim Connell to indulge his obsession with the Brazilian national music “choro.” Joined by fellow gypsy jazz string player Mike Burdette, the two soon built a large repertoire of these quirky instrumental tunes.
Because of their technique and Connell’s adventurous improvisation, they have been featured in traditionally classical concert series and jazz festivals.
Tickets are $15 and available on Brown Paper Tickets, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling Bill Svendsen at 360-901-0962.
Wine, beer and other refreshments are available for purchase.
The Peninsula Arts Center (peninsulaartscenter.org) is at 504 Pacific Ave. N. Long Beach, Wash. Events benefit the nonprofit Long Beach Peninsula Acoustic Music Foundation.
