“I wanted to share how well EducArte’s workshop taught by Jean-Francis Varre went. As a representative of Black Atlantic, he presented the workshop “Clave-Orphan root of American Culture.” This tied wonderfully into our special assembly day focused on cultural heritage. Jean-Francis more than exceeded our expectations. He engaged our students from Pre-K all the way to eighth grade, tying in music from his background as well as theirs. We could not have been happier with how he shared his talent with us, and we definitely look forward to working with EducArte again in the future.”
—Hannah Bernitt, Holy Redeemer School, College Park, MD

“We hired EducArte to give a Brazilian dance and percussion workshop at our annual conference. Many members who participated in the workshop shared how much they enjoyed EducArte, who brought incredible energy to the room by generously sharing their many musical and dance talents. I am grateful to Pablo and Kate for creating such a diverse program, for providing educational context about each particular dance style, and for sharing their positive electric energy with us. In the closing reception, one of the senior prolific scholars of our Society stated, speaking of EducArte’s session, “I’d never seen my colleagues dance before and it was so wonderful.'”
—Vanessa Sperduti, Assistant Director, Comparative and International Education Society

“Creative Alliance worked with Pablo and Forrobodó for our 2015 Viva Brazil party. We hadn’t included forró before, and their performance was nothing less than spectacular. By the end of the set, the dance floor was packed and dancers were all smiles.”
—Josh Kohn, Performance Director, The Creative Alliance

“Samba Jig Productions has provided live background music for Children’s Law Center’s annual Benefit for several years. The performers’ talent and music selection help create the perfect atmosphere for our elegant cocktail reception. Our attendees often comment on how great they are. And as an added bonus, Pablo is a pleasure to work with – friendly, professional, and attentive.”
—Billy Fettweis, Children’s Law Center

“I met several of the artists in what is now DC Choro way back in September of 2006 at a concert featuring their work at the Haskell Center of the Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington DC. They enthralled the audience with their syncopated Brazilian music and played an encore when the audience asked for more. DC Choro is a sure-bet musical group that will have you listen attentively at first. Suddenly, before you know it, you’ll be on your feet on the dance floor whether you know how to dance or not.”
—Carlos Parada, Casa de Maryland

“Pablo and his band were terrific. I was putting on a dinner event for a huge out-of-town realtor organization from all over the U.S., and he won all our hearts. Pablo was easy to work out the details, knew exactly what to do, and took any anxiety I had away. Thank you, Pablo. I recommend his band to everyone.”
—Vivian Feen, Re/Max Advantage Realty

“Pablo and his band really added a special touch to our wedding. The music was beautiful and soft and created a warm, welcoming and happy environment for all of our guests! We cannot wait for another excuse to listen to them play again.”
—Dolores Chávez

“Working with DC Choro was an absolute pleasure. They were very responsive, easy to work with, and professional. The group has a broad repertoire and was able to tailor the performance to our needs. This particular gig was in an office setting where the musical entertainment needed to provide a backdrop, but not be overpowering. DC Choro was able to strike the right balance in this case. A real crowd pleaser for the Brazilian and Brazil enthusiast audience members!”
—Amy Swers, MedImmune

“I worked with Pablo on several special events for the Washington Office on Latin America as well as for Children’s Law Center. The music he provided for those occasions was absolutely perfect and made our special events more festive and sophisticated. He was a pleasure to work with and he completely took any worry I had about musical entertainment away. I highly recommend him.”
—Lori Piccolo, Development Director at Institute of Human Virology, University of Maryland School of Medicine
