Metro Art Presents: Thalma & Laércio de Freitas

  • Union Station Los Angeles 800 Alameda Street Los Angeles, CA, 90012 United States (map)

I will have the pleasure of joining Thalma & Laércio de Freitas at this very special performance. 

Metro Art Los Angeles is pleased to present the musical stylings of Thalma & Laércio de Freitas performing together during a free nightime concert in Union Station's Historic Ticketing Hall!  

This special performance will be the U.S. debut for the elder de Freitas.

Acclaimed Brazilian arranger, composer, pianist, and conductor Laércio de Freitas studied piano from the age of five. Since 1966, he has enjoyed an international career giving concerts in Europe, Asia and Mexico. In the late 60s, he replaced the musician Luiz Eça, in the group Tamba 4, and has accompanied renowned artists such as Ivan Lins, Maria Bethânia, Marcos Valle, Wilson Simonal, Nancy Wilson, The Supremes, Clara Nunes, Emílio Santiago and many others. Laércio made arrangements for the LP "Quem é Quem", recorded by João Donato, in 1973.

Living in Los Angeles since 2012, Thalma de Freitas, who carries the moniker “maestro’s daughter,” made her professional debut in a Brazilian production of Hair in 1992. De Freitas has starred in numerous Brazilian television shows and released her debut self-titled solo album in 2004. In addition to serving as the vocalist in the carioca big band Orquestra Imperial, her songwriting and vision have led to a wide variety of collaborations with both contemporary and legendary musicians, such as João Donato, Caetano Veloso, Gal Costa, Céu, Quantic, Georgia Anne Muldrow, and Kamasi Washington.
