A Celebration of 50 years of Brazil 66.
Sergio Mendes has signed on to lead the largest concert of the 2016 Ventura Music Festival: Sergio Mendes: A Celebration of 50 years of Brazil 66. The music legend will bring his cool factor, along with a company of musicians and singers, for an exciting evening of the pop/jazz/bossa nova sound that’s as alluring today as when it landed him in the Grammy Hall of Fame! Mendes opens the Festival’s 2nd weekend on Friday, July 22nd. The venue for the Mendes concert only is the Oxnard Performing Arts Center – with food trucks and a pre-concert dance party in the PAC Courtyard from 6 to 7:30.
All other concerts of the 2016 Festival take place in the Ventura College Performing Arts Center.
The Festival leads off the first weekend on July 15th with the chart-topping Anderson & Roe Piano Duo who have captivated audiences with “outrageous and transcendental” performances and music videos viewed by millions. How good are they? “Even the most jaded of concert goers sat forward in their seats and dropped their jaws in amazement.” A sensational start to the Festival.
Tickets to all concerts of the Ventura Music Festival are on sale now at VenturaMusicFestival.org or 648-3146.
