    SPCO Cultural Partners share Brazil’s percussive sounds


    As part of the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra’s music residency with University of Chicago Presents, Cultural Partners Program musicians recently visited Wadsworth Elementary School in Woodlawn and presented "Making Music Brazilian Style." Geraldo De Oliveira, Brazilian percussionist, and Paulinho Garcia, guitarist, showed students different percussive instruments and played songs from around the world. They ended their program with a rap in which students could participate.
