Open rehearsal: "House of Departures"

Orchestra of Families performs live at the Real Vinícola

The Orchestra of Families presents "House of Departures" live, April 2nd, 4pm, at CARA - Orquestra Jazz de Matosinhos, in Real Vinícola. A kind of open rehearsal where we try to answer the question: what does it take to build a house? Between pranks and games, merry-go-rounds and ribbons that take us back to a circus, we are looking for some clues packed with songs from all times.

The repertoire will include "A Casa" by Vinícius de Morais, "A Minha Casinha" by António Melo (music) and João Silva Tavares (lyrics), "With a Little Help from My Friends" by Lennon-McCartney, "Dinky Toys" by António Pinho Vargas, "Canção do Miradouro" by Jorge Prendas, and the traditional "House of the Rising Sun" and "Ain't Gonna Let Nobody Turn Me 'Round".

Guided by Sara Vilar, Ana Conceição and Beatriz Rôla, the Family Orchestra is a project of the educational program of Orquestra Jazz de Matosinhos, created in 2018, with the support of the Matosinhos City Hall.

Inclusive and multidisciplinary, with biweekly sessions and free access, this is an informal orchestra of parents and children, uncles and grandparents, which deepens family ties through the development of creative musical and arts skills, in groups and individually.

The Family Orchestra has already performed live at the Rivoli Theater, at the Matosinhos Municipal Market, and at the Real Vinícola.
