The Choro, Caipira and Samba music of Brazil is showcased Tempero Brasileiro, Arcomusical and in Chicago Samba. We will have a Samba Parade marching thru the grounds, and even a clinic on samba dancing and percussion playing, so the whole community can join in!
Finally with Neusa Sauer and Som Brazil we will honor the late Chicago-based Brazilian Pianist Breno Sauer.
The diversity of art and culture in the Chicago area is unparalleled, and I am overjoyed to bring these wonderful musicians right to our Main Street downtown Glen Ellyn.”
Fareed Haque – Artistic Director
Brazilian pianist/composer Breno Sauer of Som Brazil, one of the most important figures in Brazilian music in Chicago for the past 30 years, passed away last year. Breno’s wife Neusa, a singer with Som Brazil, has arranged a tribute to her late husband to be performed during this year’s Jazz Up Glen Ellyn, a welcome and important addition to our festival.
