2018 Under the Stars Summer Concert Series: The Brazil Project


Led by pianist, Bert Dalton, The Brazil Project performs a blend of traditional, contemporary, and original Brazilian music featuring samba, bossa nova, the excitement of carnival and top-flight jazz and Latin improvisations. Tonight they will be presenting a tribute to Brazilian musicians, Manfredo Fest. Manfredo Fest was an integral part of the popularization of Brazilian music in America through his own recordings and compositions as well as his working relationship with Sergio Mendes. His name and compositions are lesser know and deserve wider recognition.

  • Patty Stephens- vocals

  • Frank Leto-percussion
  • Bert Dalton-piano
  • John Bartlit-drums.
