Orquestra Jazz de Matosinhos invites young and old to a new group at União de Freguesias de São Mamede Infesta e Senhora da Hora

The Orchestra of Families will start a new project out of doors, in the Parish Union of São Mamede Infesta and Senhora da Hora, and is recruiting kids and adults willing to sing, play, build rhythm with their bodies, write lyrics and improvise.

In the Family Orchestra, the invitation is made to all those who feel music in their own way and want to share that happiness in artistic creation sessions, in a relaxed environment.

Starting on the 25th, the São Mamede Civic Center (Rua do Centro 2, 4465-166) will be the stage for these meetings. Access is free and families of all ages are expected to attend. Registration can be made through e-mail The sessions at the São Mamede Civic Center will take place on March 25 and April 22, from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.; May 14, from 2:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.; and May 27 from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

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

Inclusive and multidisciplinary, it 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.

The first group of the Orchestra of Families continues to meet at CARA every two weeks. On April 2nd, you are all invited to the concert "House of Departures", at the Orquestra Jazz de Matosinhos studio, in Real Vinícola, at 6pm. Admission is free.
