Today and on the weekend, there will be a series of German-Brazilian concerts. The Mackenzie University Choir will get together with the Georg-Friedrich-Händel-Gymnasium's Young Symphony Orchestra for three concerts, conducted by Parcival Módolo. The concerts will take place in the Zwinglikirche (Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg), on the 21st at 19:00; in the Lindenkirche (Wilmersdorf), on the 23rd, at 19:30; and in the Friedrichskirche (Potsdam), on the 24th, at 17:00.

On Friday the 22nd at 19:00, the Mackenzie University Choir will also perform a concert in the Brazilian Embassy.  This choir was founded in 2005, and incorporates 80 singers (males and females). The concert will be a cappella (with no instrumental backing), and the repertoire is expected to include Brazilian and international songs.

Also on Friday the 22nd at 21:00, there will be a concert of World Jazz by the Brasil Acoustic Quintett. This group is originally from Dresden, and their sound is a mix of Brazilian progressive rock, jazz, and experimental popular folk music. This means they have a 7-string guitar, a piano, a flute, vocals, bass, and drums. The result is, as it's said in the Brazilian Cultural Agenda, “a unique blend of energy, a passionate melancholy, and the joy of being alive”. The concert will take place in Yorckschlösschen, Yorckstr. 15 - 10965 Berlin. For more information, one can access the website:

To finish this musical weekend in the best possible way, there will also be a concert on Saturday, the 23rd from 20:15 to 23:00, of “French Bossa-Jazz”, with Lisa Zenner. This German-French singer will get together with Rachel Kenesei, a violinist, to perform this concert named “Promesses”. Besides singing, Lisa Zenner also writes her own lyrics. With arrangements by Gerd Pfeuffer, the result will be a unique mix of Latin-American rhythms, Brazilian bossa-nova, and the melancholic tone from the French chansons. For 15€, at Corbo, Kiefholzstr. 1-4 - 12435 Berlin. For more information, one can access the website: or call 030 53604001.
