TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — The Terre Haute Symphony Orchestra is bringing a Brazilian trio to perform in town.
And no, we’re not talking about Jesse Walker’s hometown of Brazil, Indiana.
Choro Das 3, is an all-female trio currently on their eighth tour of America, and will be stopping by Rose-Hulman’s Hatfield Hall on November 11. The trio will collaborate with their friend, and award winning mandolinist Solly Burton as well as Terre Haute favorite Brent McPike for a one-night-only performance.
Having released 11 albums, Choro Das 3’s final stop on this tour of the United States will be here in Terre Haute.
“This is an extraordinary opportunity to hear stunning virtuoso Brazilian stars,” notes Dr. David Bowden, Artistic Director and Conductor of the Terre Haute Symphony. “You don’t want to miss them.”
The trio consists of sisters, Corina on the flute, Lia playing a 7-string guitar, and Elisa who plays numerous instruments throughout the performance. The group dedicates each performance to the memory of their father, Eduardo, who died from Covid-19 early in the pandemic before vaccines were available in their country. Eduardo had been the band’s manager and percussionist. Since his death, the trio’s mother Cristina has stepped in to manage the trio.
