2011-2012 Fine Arts Season Performance

Inaldo Cavalcante de Albuquerque “Spok,” musical director

Texas Performing Arts presents the Austin debut of this Brazilian big band sensation, touring the United States for the first time. Fronted by musical director/saxophonist Maestro Spok, this 17-musician outfit—saxophone, trumpet, trombone, rhythm sections, bass, and guitar—draws inspiration from frevo, a vibrant music of elaborate arrangements and deep roots. SpokFrevo Orquestra consistently pushes musical boundaries by texturing tradition with complex jazz improvisation, reinventing tradition without subverting it.
