The center welcomes guest artist and music educator Juliana Cantarelli Vita to campus for a weeklong residency, Monday, March 25 - Saturday, March 30th, 2019.

The residency will focus on Afro-Brazilian percussion genres including Maracatu de Baque Virado, as well as others from Brazil’s northeast region. Ms. Cantarelli will share her expertise as a practitioner of these genres, and as a music educator with experience working with children and adults. She will present workshops to elementary school classes throughout the week, as well as two public programs on Saturday, March 30th.

Saturday programs will include an interactive masterclass on Afro-Brazilian percussion styles from 11am-1pm in the Music Building "Fishbowl" (room 0359), followed by a lecture-recital that evening, at 7pm at the Spurlock Museum's Knight Auditorium. 

Both events will focus on musical genres from Juliana’s home state of Pernambuco, including Maracatu de Baque Virado among others. Masterclass participants are cordially invited to return for the evening lecture-recital as performers, although this is optional and not required. 

This residency is co-sponsored by the Spurlock Museum of World Cultures, the UIUC School of Music, and the Lemann Institute for Brazilian Studies.
