Brazilian Music & Jazz

Come experience a night of Brazilian Music and Jazz at the Mengle Memorial Library in Brockway. On Tuesday, July 21st at 6:30 p.m. the library will be hosting the Commonwealth Speaker Flavio Chamis, a conductor and composer from Pittsburgh.

This presentation will cover much of the richly diverse and ebullient music that Brazil has to offer. Several well-known songs will be presented in their original Brazilian recordings, accompanied by an English translation of the lyrics. Spend a summer night enjoying music at the library.

This presentation is a program of the Pennsylvania Humanities Council, a Federal-State partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities. The PHC inspires people to come together and share a life of learning. Since 1973, the PHC has provided resources that empower local groups to help their communities explore history, literature, the arts and the ideas that shape the human experience.
