On Sunday, July 30 from 7:00-8:00pm, Choro das Tres will perform a family friendly concert at the West Tisbury Library. This will be the third year Choro das Tres has performed at the library. This free performance is open to the public and is made possible by the generous support of the Friends of the West Tisbury Library and the West Tisbury Library Foundation.

Choro das Tres is a Brazilian instrumental group of three sisters and their father that first started to play as a band in 2003. Corina plays flute and piccolo. Lia plays seven string guitar. Elisa plays mandolin, banjo, clarinet and piano. Their father, Eduardo, plays pandeiro, the Brazilian tambourine. The music they play is called Choro. Choro is a form of urban jazz, native to Brazil, that shares a similar feel with New Orleans jazz, ragtime and bluegrass. Choro das Tres’ mission is to revive the Choro tradition in Brazil, where they join several other young people rediscovering this music, and to spread Choro around the world.
