Explore the Brazilian choral tradition with the director of the King’s Brazil Ensemble, Dr Vinicius Mariano de Carvalho.
The King's Brazil Ensemble is dedicated to the study and practice of a Brazilian and British repertoire for string orchestra (eventually with soloists or guest musicians). The ensemble was created in 2015 and had its debut in a performance at the Brazilian Embassy in London, in March 2015. The members of the ensemble, mostly, are or were music students at King's College. The creation of the ensemble was an initiative of Dr. Vinicius Mariano de Carvalho, Lecturer at King's Brazil Institute, who is also the director of the group.
