Music at the Library: Porto Seguro

Celebrate Carnival season with a concert of Brazilian music by the Charleston-based quartet and Library Society audience favorite, Porto Seguro. Lighthearted, rhythmic, and mellow like a great cup coffee, the bands blend is quintessentially Brazilian with an American twist. Susan Conant, flutes; John Holenko, mandolin; Tom Noren, seven string guitar and Jonathan Kennedy, bass cover a varied collection of choro (lighthearted Afro-European mix), samba (the raucous music of Carnival) and bossa nova (Brazils distinctive contribution to jazz) tunes. Throughout the concert, Noren, a native of Rio, provides a musical guidebook to Brazil. The band balances expert instrumental technique with a laid-back groove in an entertaining and informative program of well-known and unusual Brazilian tunes. Tickets are $25 for members and $35 for guests. To purchase tickets, call 843-723-9912 or click here.
