Music from Brazil

Brazil team 2018

Yesterday, I posted about the concert we went to at the Downey Theater on Saturday. On Sunday, we went to a concert at Redeemer Covenant Church of Downey. It was a group of young performers from Brazil. These young performers were filled with energy and we got to witness them display their talent in several ways. There was dancing, singing, and instrumentals. It was a great experience.

The performers are students at Art and Social Transformation in Brazil. This program takes any young artist, especially from low income families or at risk communities and develops their talent to meet their full potential. At the end of summer each year, certain pupils that have shown that they can make a living by using their talents are chosen to participate at Cal Arts Annual 3-week CAPSA program in Los Angeles. You can read about the program here. Afterwards, they travel throughout the United States giving concerts. Redeemer Covenant Church is one of those places that is chosen each year.

"Music is the mediator between the spiritual and the sensual life." 
~Ludwig van Beethoven
