“Show Brazil” music fun on First Friday at the Museum!
The high-energy Brazilian band Show Brazil will play and dance at the Wenatchee Valley Museum and Cultural Center on Friday, June 5, at 8 p.m. The program is associated with the museum’s current exhibit, “Extraordinary Ordinary People: American Masters of Traditional Arts.” Admission is free, with donations encouraged.
The Kirkland-based artists perform songs in the bossa nova and Brazilian Carnaval traditions as well as original tunes by leader Eduardo Mendonca. “Their lively music will have the audience dancing all over the room!” museum exhibits coordinator Bill Rietveldt said.
Mariachi students from Wenatchee High School, under the direction of Ramón Rivera, will perform at the museum from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. as part of the Wenatchee First Fridays art walk. Refreshments will be served from 5 p.m. on, with beer and wine available for purchase. Maps to other First Friday venues are available at the museum.
The exhibit and five associated live programs at the museum are co-presented by Northwest Heritage Resources with support from the National Endowment for the Arts, ArtsWA (formerly Washington State Arts Commission), Humanities WA, Finlandia Foundation and Michigan State University. The museum is located at 127 S. Mission Street in Wenatchee.
