Choro das 3 is a family-based Brazilian instrumental band comprised of three sisters — Corina (flute), Lia (even-string acoustic guitar), and Elisa (mandolin, clarinet, banjo and piano) — and their father Eduardo (pandeiro).
For the last three years, Choro das 3 has around the United States, Mexico and France. The ensemble has performed more than 40 concerts, and has played and taught workshops at many festivals and universities, including making an appearance at Mike Marshall’s and David Grisman’s Mandolin Symposium. The band’s appearances at the symposium led Marshall to say that Choro das 3 plays “. . . some of the most inspired and inspiring music” with “the highest level of musicianship and presentation” and “the highest quality of Brazilian Choro music that can be heard any place today.”
The Jack H. Miller Center for Musical Arts is located at 221 Columbia Ave., between Ninth and 10th streets.
