For more than 500 years, Brazilians have created and danced to music drawn from a rich and colorful mix of influences: Amerindian, African, Portuguese, European classical, rural folk styles, and numerous religious and cultural traditions. All those influences also fed the Brazilian classical composers of the 20th century as they created uniquely Brazilian music for the concert stage. Music by some of those composers, including Heitor Villa-Lobos, Francisco Mignone, M. Camargo Guarnieri and others, will be performed on Tuesday, November 1 at 7:30 p.m., in a recital featuring NMSU Coordinator of Vocal Studies, Sarah Daughtrey, and visiting pianist Justin Badgerow. Daughtrey and NMSU Professor of Portuguese Lucy Zollner, who will present a pre-concert talk at 7 p.m. on Brazilian music, came to KRWG to talk about the concert with Intermezzo host Leora Zeitlin.
