Event Details

Presidio Free Programs: Talks, Music & Performances | SF

San Francisco’s tradition of diverse cultural expression started at the Presidio, and continues today with events that enlighten, engage, and entertain, taking place at the Presidio Officers’ Club.

Enjoy topical discussions, live music, dance, and interactive family activities, all free to the public and sponsored by the Presidio Trust, in partnership with cultural institutions from across the Bay Area.

The Berkeley Choro Ensemble (pronounced “shoro”) brings an excess of flair and swing to Brazilian choro music.

The world-class Bay Area musicians made their debut in January 2010, celebrating the music, culture and history of Brazil, with a special emphasis on the choro genre. Their repertoire also includes samba, bossa nova, jazz, and the music of Northeast Brazil.

Choro is a style of music that emerged in the 1800s, fusing the music of Brazil’s European immigrants and the native music of the indigenous and African-Brazilian population. The sound is akin to a combination of European classical music, ragtime, and blues.
