About:

After winning first at the Brazilian National A Capella Vocal Group Competition in Rio de Janeiro, the group released their first CD, which was acclaimed as one of the 100 best of the year.

With vibrant harmonies, Brazilian rhythms and a fun, engaging stage presence, Ordinarius has breathed new life into Brazil’s most beloved songs, from traditional choro to the music of Carmen Miranda.

The repertoire is sometimes performed a cappella (without the use of instruments) or enriched with instruments like guitar, cavaquinho (a small Portuguese string instrument in the European guitar family) and varied percussion instruments. It covers the national and international popular songbook, from the American pop of Stevie Wonder, the rock of the Beatles, to the bossa nova of Johnny Alf, the sobbing of Ernesto Nazareth and the samba of Gilberto Gil.

$35 General Public | $30 Members and J-Pass Holders.

Presented by The Oshman Family JCC.
