Final Fridays@7 The Hottest So Far!

Thursday, April 22, 2010 ·

The final Fridays@7 concert on April 30th is sure to turn up the heat with an evening that features trumpeter Michael Sachs, flamenco guitarist extraordinaire Juanito Pascual, and Marcos Santos, one of the hottest Brazilian percussionists around.

The concert will begin @7:00 with Bernard Labadie leading a program featuring Handel's Water Music and Cleveland Orchestra trumpeter Michael Sachs performing a Czech-flavored concerto by Neruda.

After the one-hour concert there will be more music, food and drinks with master percussionist Marcos Santos and Cleveland-based Brazilian drum group Samba Joia. Samba Joia performs interactive Brazilian music that uses movement, call and response and song with the audience.

Also performing is Juanito Pascual, whose musical style has been described as passionate and sensual. Joining them is award winning flamenco dancer Nino de los Reyes.

When the after concert ends the party moves to Sergio's Sarava in Shaker Square where Marcos Santos and members of the Ohio Choro Club keep the music going with improvised samba percussion. The Ohio Choro Club performs a Brazilian music style which originated in the 1870’s by blending European and African music elements. This music is all performed table side so that the audience is part of the music.

If you bring your Fridays@7 ticket stub to Sarava they’ll give you a free surprise gift courtesy of CACHACA 51.
