BYU vocalists present evening of Brazilian music Sept. 11

The Brigham Young University School of Music will present "Concerto Brasileiro," an evening of folk, secular, popular and sacred music from Brazil under the direction of J. Arden Hopkin Saturday, Sept. 11, at 7:30 p.m. in the Madsen Recital Hall, Harris Fine Arts Center.

Admission is free.

Hopkin, a member of the vocal performance faculty at BYU, traveled to Brazil this summer for a series of performances with three BYU student performers, mezzo-soprano Erika Edwards Decaster, tenor Christopher T. Lewis, baritone Nathan Pacheco and pianist Brandon Matthews.

Their concert will include works by Heitor Villa-Lobos, Camargo Guarnieri, Jean Berger, Valdemar Henrique, Juan Rios Ovalle, and António Carlos Jobim, as well as compositions by area composers Dan Carter, Michael Moody, Mack Wilberg, Murray Boren and Christopher T. Lewis.
