#FavelaBrass2016 – Our First Chance!

The first concrete opportunity of our ‪#‎FavelaBrass2016‬ campaign has arrived!

Yesterday Rio’s Culture Ministry invited Favela Brass to the the launch of a new program, which will award the 120 winning bands with R$20,000 and the chance to play up to 5 shows on the cultural stages that will be set up around the city during the “Olympic period” (May – Sept).

Applications will open on Tuesday and we’ll probably have about 6 weeks to put our bid together. Part of this application will almost certainly be a showreel of the children playing, so the challenge over the coming weeks will be to put together a show that does justice to our childrens’ talents, then get a top quality recording of us performing it in public.

Exciting stuff!!
