The Shippensburg University-Community Orchestra will be joined on stage by a Brazilian jazz group for its latest concert this month.
The orchestra, conducted by Mark Hartman, will be joined by Minas for “Symphony in Bossa.” Minas has been on the forefront of world music and Brazilian jazz in the Northeast United States for the past 30 years.
The group is led by husband and wife team Orlando Haddad and Patricia King, the latter of which grew up in Carlisle. The two have released seven albums, with King on piano and vocals and Orlando on nylon-string guitar and vocals.
“Symphony on Bossa” was the last major project by master jazz arranger Bill Zaccagni, and was released in 2015 when it received four Grammy nominations.
In addition to “Symphony on Bossa,” the orchestra will perform the music of two contemporary Mexican composers: “Estampus Mexicanas” by Jose Elizondo and “Danzon No. 2” by Arturo Marquez.
The concert will take place at 3 p.m. Sunday, April 14 at the H. Ric Luhrs Performing Arts Center.
