Choros on Cellos — The choro repertoire of Brazil is perfectly suited for cello. With beautiful melodies, surprising harmonic twists and infectious rhythm, choros highlight a unique facet of our instrument and offer ample opportunities for innovation and improvisation. Assisted by Brazilian percussionist Café da Silva and pianist Tim Ray, Eugene will demonstrate and teach his “choro pizz” technique, and briefly survey the repertoire.  Sunday June 12: 10:10 A.M. – 11:10 A.M.
