    Default 2014 Choro Workshop in Port Townsend WA- registration now open

    Just got this from Gregg Miller, the Program Manager of the Choro Workshop at Port Townsend. We are doing the same group of teachers again, but bringing back Douglas Lora on 7 String guitar, given the excitement that adding Anat Cohen to the workshop created. The dynamic was amazing. As one of the people that help pull this together, I hope that if you have any thought of getting a deep understanding of the music, that you'll come. This has been one of the few places outside of Brazil that you can learn from masters of this music, in an ensemble setting for three full days, and one additional evening (a Wednesday night party with late night jamming). I can say that last year's late night jamming was absolutely worth the time alone. I'll be leading a slow jam every evening after dinner, as well. Contact Gregg with questions on that. Please feel free to pass this along to any of your friends who play guitar, flute, clarinet, piano and hand drums.

    Hello, Choro Musicians! I'm writing to you because you've attended Centrum's Choro workshop in past years. I wanted you to be the first to know that our 2014 workshop is now open for registration. The dates are April 30 - May 4. The faculty will be Dudu Maia, bandolim; Anat Cohen, clarinet; Jovino Santos Neto, keyboards; Douglas Lora, 7-string guitar; and Alexandre Lora, pandeiro. Here's a link to Centrum's web page with more info, including how to register.

    As always, registration will be limited in order to maintain the intimate feel this workshop is known for, so I encourage you to register as soon as you can. Feel free to call or email me directly with any questions you may have.

    I hope you'll be able to join us here again!

    Best,

    Gregg

    Thanks for the notice. Is this suitable for an intermediate level mandolin player and is any of the music available in advance of the workshop?
