Light in Winter with Doug de Vries
What a night! Thanks everyone who came along to our second Bridging Traditions Concert at Deakin Edge, Federation Square with Australian guitarist Doug de Vries as part of the Light in Winter Festival. We had a ball playing music from and inspired by Brazil, including Doug’s arrangement of Lamentos do Morro by Garoto, Jobim’s Chega de Saudade and Doug’s composition Hummingbird. Everyone joined in the Carnival spirit and wore a splash of colour, especially the women of the NPCO who were styled and dressed by Melbourne fashionistas Melko – Made in Brazil, who brought the colour of Rio to the NPCO stage! We also rolled out the red carpet – you can view and tag yourself in photos on our Facebook page. We filmed the evening so check back here for a clip soon!
