Event Details

 

The Festival Kick-Off at the Hobby Center will be a celebration of Brazilian music and culture, with performances by the following gifted artists:

Sergio Mendes

Grammy Award winner Sergio Mendes remains the most internationally successful Brazilian artist of all time, having taken numerous albums and singles, such as "Brasil 66," "Mas Que Nada," and "The Look of Love," to the top of the pop charts. Although widely recognized as a bossa nova pioneer, Mendes remains relevant by regularly updating his sound with modern arrangements of Brazilian classics, and collaborations with artists such as Erykah Badu, Justin Timberlake, John Legend, Stevie Wonder, and co-producer Will.I.Am of the Black Eyed Peas.

Casa Samba

Opening the evening in support of Sergio Mendes will be Casa Samba, a New Orleans-based, authentic Brazilian Escola de Samba (samba school), presenting our guests with an exciting Brazilian Carnival and folk arts experience. Casa Samba’s performances combine an elaborate presentation of dance, theater, vocals and drumming to capture the spirit of Carnival in Brazil, as well as presenting a history of the African influence of its culture, music and dance, culminating in a fantastic re-creation of Carnival parade of Brazil.

Special Pre and Post-Performance Events:

The Chairman’s Reception
Underwriters for the Festival Kick-Off will enjoy a top-shelf experience beginning with the exclusive Chairman’s Reception. Held in the Hobby Center Founder’s Club prior to the evening’s performance, this unique reception will be the official launch for the evening, welcoming business and civic leaders, festival sponsors, and distinguished members of the local Brazilian community.

Post-Performance Meet and Greet
This reception after the concert for Underwriter guests will offer the opportunity to meet and greet performers, featuring a Brazilian after-party in the Grand Lobby of the Hobby Center complete with refreshments.
