Musical Presentation 03/11/2018 - CEU Alvarenga, São Paulo

“Without music, life would be a mistake”  -  Nietzsche         

Our musical presentation was a true celebration for us! A moment to reflect on the many wonderful memories we made in 2018…

Every time we welcomed a new season, we assembled a collection of new music ("Music of the Season”) and dedicated time to practicing as a group. Our children's choir had the honor of participating in the ABBA Group Show at the Space of the Americas, and hosted the group's singers during an exclusive musical visit at our school. The Band of Curumins visited the Clara Nunes Theater for the Show Vida Bela featuring talented artist Michael Pipoquinha. We also attended Andrea Bocelli's concert at Allianz Park – an event that certainly marked the lives of many who were there.

Creating positive memories that reinforce courage in our daily lives is one of our goals. We hope you can appreciate the journey we have all been on this past year – one of dedication and persistence that has led us to finding new partners, and embracing the important role of friends and family. May we pursue light, hope and land in a promising future!

Thank you so much! Enjoy!

Andrea Bocelli Concert at Allianz Park

Andrea Bocelli – Allianz Parque 30/09/2018

Attending Bocelli’s concert – a worldwide renowned tenor- was a dream come true for many of our students and an undoubtedly impactful discovery for others.  Bocelli performed an impeccable and emotional concert with the orchestra, choir, and Brazilian soprano Maria Rita. In the first part of the concert, he presented a number of well-known arias, moving to perform songs from his album "Romanza" in the second part. Our group of over 100 people consisted of children, and adults of all ages!  Their praise for everything they witnessed and for the beautiful production of the event was endless.

Meeting with the German group TRIO ELF and Marco Lobo

On tour in Brazil, the German musicians of the Trio ELF launched “The Brazilian album” jointly with the Brazilian percussionist Marco Lobo. We had the great pleasure of being invited once again in the jazz club JazzNosFundos in order to assist this wonderful concert. Formed by Gerwin Eisenhauer (drums), Walter Lang (piano), and Peter Cudek (bass guitar), the Trio ELF created a wide repertory of acoustic versions of iconic electronic artists such as Aphex Twin and Kraftwerk, and produced as well digital versions of classics from the Monk, Milton Nascimento, Paolo Conte and Brahms. The biggest satisfaction was to welcome these musicians for an exclusive workshop for our students, which was plenty of truly enriching and high-level musical talks as well as of great emotions.

Reportage in the Brazilian broadcast programme Jornal da Band

“The power of art in environments where the state is absent”

The title of this reportage may appear strong, but those who live in disadvantaged contexts know and will agree. The broadcast programme Jornal da Band came to discover the work that we carry out in the Quarteirão da Música with children and teenagers from the southern areas of São Paulo, and the reportage went on air. A project by #CasadosCurumins, today the Quarteirão da Música holds a specific space for musical learning, and provide more than 100 children and youth with facilities and a pedagogic programme that is suitable and compliant with the main references of the musical language. The band Banda dos Curumins is the fruit of this work.

A light of dignity and empowerment.

A Workshop hosted by Percussionist and composer Marco Lobo

A few of our students participated in the workshop "From the palm of the hand to the sole of the foot" held at the SESC Consolação.

Have you ever stopped to think that our body is an entire musical instrument? The percussionist Marco Lobo took this reflection to his course in a very practical and attractive way, where he spoke about the importance of rehearsals, how to compose arrangements and his professional experiences in shows and studios.
The students were able to learn a little more about musical perception, rhythmic independence, improvisation, touches and Brazilian popular songs and culture using: folia box, patangome, gunga, berimbau (traditional and modern), percussive tones and experimental sounds.
Another moment marked by this master so admired by us.

Musical Les Misérables (Renault Theatre)

In May, we took a group of students, including children and adolescents, to see the award-winning Broadway musical Les Misérables at the Renault Theatre.

Attending the musical gave way to a productive conversation afterwards, where we discussed not only artistic charm, but also about music being a way to convey historical and political context.
