Brazilian mandolin soloist and composer Danilo Brito will perform in the Toledo Museum of Art’s GlasSalon Thursday, Aug. 29 at 8 p.m. Joining Brito will be seven-string guitar player Carlos Moura and six-string guitar player Guilherme Girardi.

The trio will play choro music, often described as the New Orleans jazz of Brazil with a fast, happy rhythm. Brito is an authority in the art of playing choro and his repertoire spans more than a century from the birth of Brazil's first national music to the major composers and new compositions that expand the literature.

“We are pleased that Daniel Brito could return to the Museum this year after last year’s wonderful concert,” said Scott Boberg TMA’s manager of programs and audience engagement. “The audience loved his performance last year, and we are looking forward to hearing both his new compositions and some of Brazil’s favorite choro music.”

Tickets are $10 for TMA members, $15 for nonmembers and $7 for students and military. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit or call the Information Desk at (419) 255-8000 ext. 7448 during Museum hours.

Great Performances is supported in part by the Dorothy MacKenzie Price Fund, Hartmann & Associates, Joseph and Judith Conda, Shaun Coughlan, Carlos A. de Carvalho, Geraldine Mowery, Nancy K. Phlegar, and an anonymous donor.
