In their debut North American tour, Valley Performing Arts Center proudly presents Bahia Orchestra Project: Samba Spectacular, praised by The Sunday Times as "The remarkable Youth Orchestra of Bahia, Brazil's pride." Founded in 2007 by critically acclaimed Brazilian pianist and conductor Ricardo Castro, the amazingly talented young musicians — part of the long-term NEOJIBA educational program — offer an exciting selection of popular dance music arranged for full symphony orchestra and Brazilian percussion. Get ready for an electrifying party atmosphere as the dancing drummers bring the audience to their feet and make them dance in the aisles.
