Choro das 3 takes the audience on a trip to Brazil, transcending the limits of choro music through new original compositions and arrangements of traditional pieces. Elements of folk music from different areas of Brazil, like frevo, samba, chamam, baio, forr and international jazz, bluegrass, Portuguese fado and classical chamber music.

PERFORMER BIO:
Choro das 3 is a Brazilian trio of sisters. The trio plays Brazilian instrumental music based on choro, an instrumental music genre that emerged in Brazil in the 19th century to become the foundation for all Brazilian music. Choro das 3 is planning its eighth tour of the USA beginning in late May 2023.

Of the three sisters in the band, Corina, the oldest, plays flute and piccolo, Lia plays acoustic 7 string guitar, Elisa, the youngest sister, plays mandolin, clarinet, banjo, piano and accordion.

In Brazil, Choro das 3 has played for presidents and for huge audiences such as So Paulo’s New Year’s Eve Party (2 million people). It has been on national TV many times, including the Jo Soares show (the Brazilian version of “The Tonight Show”).
From 2013 to 2019, Choro das 3 toured in the USA annually. Reviewers say the band is, “superbly talented,” “cohesive,” and “beguiling.” Renowned musician Mike Marshall says that Choro das 3 plays “. . . some of the most inspired and inspiring music . . . the highest level of musicianship and presentation . . . the highest quality of Brazilian Choro music that can be heard any place today.”

Choro das 3 has played over 300 USA concerts from Massachusetts to California, from Seattle to Miami. They’ve played clubs like The Jazz Showcase (Chicago IL), The Jazz Station (Eugene OR), The Metropolitan Room (NYC) and The Nashville Jazz Workshop (Nashville). They’ve had residencies at US universities such as Roger Williams University, Rhode Island University, Western Oregon University, Eastern Oregon University, Rhodes College, Hope College, University of Memphis, The University of Tennessee at Martin and Florida International University. They performed at the wonderful Shalin Liu Performance Center (Rockport, MA), at Old Town School of Folk Music (Chicago, IL) and The Freight and Salvage (Berkeley, CA). They’ve played festivals such as MusikFest (Bethlehem, PA), Festival International de Louisiane (Lafayette, LA), Stowe Jazz Festival (Stowe, VT), David Grisman and Mike Marshall’s Mandolin Symposium (Santa Cruz, CA), and Miami GuitART Festival.

Choro das 3 has also toured and performed in Canada, Barbados, Mexico, Portugal, Italy, Spain, and France & including appearances at Festival International Mandolines (Lunel, France), Festival Internacional de Msica de Plectro (Gondomar, Portugal), Protagonist ail Mandolino (Modena, Italy), XXI Festival de Plectro (Alcal de Henares, Spain).

The Covid pandemic caused Choro das 3 to cancel plans for their 2020 USA tour. Tragically, Eduardo, the father of the three sisters, lost his life to Covid early in the pandemic, before vaccines were available. Eduardo was the band’s percussionist from its founding. He played pandeiro (Brazilian tambourine). Bravely, the sisters resolved to continue as Choro das 3, but they play every song in their father’s memory.

During the pandemic, Choro das 3 established a weekly live feed concert on YouTube, each Thursday at 8 PM Brazil time. These on line concerts continue today, frequently attracting over 3,000 simultaneous spectators from around the world.

Choro das 3 has released 11 CDs since 2008 including a solo CD of Elisa playing her original works on piano. Seven others feature original works by the sisters and their musical friends rendered in Brazilian acoustic styles. In 2020, they released their first Christmas album, with Brazilian flavored versions of traditional songs.

BAND MEMBERS:
Corina Meyer Ferreira & Flute, Piccolo and Percussion
Lia Meyer Ferreira & 7 String Guitar
Elisa Meyer Ferreira & Mandolin, Banjo, Clarinet, Accordion and Piano.
