Take A Musical Journey To The Brazilian Rainforest

celso-machado3Multi-talented musician Celso Machado creates a magical show to open the 31st season of Children’s Showcase. A virtuoso guitarist who has toured internationally for more than 30 years, Celso also uses percussion and many other instruments to bring the rainforests of Brazil to life – with a little audience participation.  His skill, creativity and sheer joy in performance have enthralled listeners young and old around the world. Suitable for ages 3 and up, the performance will be Sunday, October 26, 2:00 p.m. at the Cleland Theatre (Penticton Community Centre).

This is the first of four shows in the Children’s Showcase series. Later in the season, two local dance schools showcase homegrown talent with Winter’s Dance (November 30), hilarious comedian and magician Alex Zerbe chases away the New Year blahs (January 11) and Motus O offers their exciting mix of dance, circus and theatre skills to end the series with a bang (May 10).

Tickets are available at Tumbleweed Gallery, Penticton & Wine Country Visitor Centre, Oliver Veterinary Hospital & The Beanery Coffee Co. in Summerland ($30 for all 4 shows or $12 per show at the door).
