Yerba Buena Gardens Festival 2017 | SF

Between May and October in 2017, the Yerba Buena Gardens Festival presents over 75 free performances on three outdoor stages in Yerba Buena Gardens.

Admission is free and entertainment includes music, theater, dance, cultural events, educational and children’s programs.

For 20 years California Brazil Camp has brought eager musicians together with some of Brazil’s greatest musicians and composers under the redwoods of Cazadero.

In celebrating this milestone year, Brazil in the Gardens brings together an all-star faculty cast, including Spok, a saxophonist, arranger and orchestra leader from Recife who’s an innovator in the exciting northeastern style of frevo, São Paulo multi-instrumental master Alessandro Penezzi (7-string guitar, cavaquinho, mandolin and flute), veteran drummer Clelso Alberti, and 23-year-old Pedro Martins, who won the 2015 Montreux Jazz Festival’s guitar competition.

Other musicians will be joining the musical party, exploring a dazzling array of Brazilian styles.
