EducArte’s Brazilian Percussion Workshop & Jam
Learn from and jam with Brazilian samba master percussionist André Coelho from Rio de Janeiro. André will show and demonstrate each of the essential Brazilian percussion instruments. Participants will learn basic rhythms and the event will finish with a jam session. Also come early for our Brazilian dance workshop immediately before the percussion ensemble!
We will have some percussion instruments, like pandeiros, tamborins, and surdos for participants. But please bring your instruments if you have any.
This is a regularly occurring Brazilian percussion meetup. All levels are welcome to participate.
This event is free and open to the public. While primarily intended for adults, everyone is welcome. Please note that this workshop will be held at St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church at 4512 College Avenue in College Park, MD. You can park in any of the parking lots behind the church—just turn onto Princetown Ave or Yale Ave to access the parking lots. We will meet outside behind the church at the circular labyrinth (looks like this: https://www.educarteinc.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/Brazilian-percussion-ensemble-St.-Andrews.jpg).
There is a chance of rain on Saturday so please check your email and our social media channels for updates in case of a weather cancellation.
Please note that masks and proof of vaccination are required at this event. Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
The event is a program of College Park-based arts non-profit EducArte. Special thanks to event sponsor, the College Park Arts Exchange.
