Orchestra, Brazil 2014
Professor of music and conductor Rebecca Burkhardt led the Northern Iowa Symphony Orchestra on a tour of spring break performances in Brazil, March 2014.
Sixty student members of the Northern Iowa Symphony Orchestra (NISO), four School of Music faculty artists and one UNI alumna found music to be a universal language while performing in Caxias do Sul, Brazil. On their way to Caxias do Sul, the group stopped for a layover and a cruise tour of the Panama Canal. During their stay in Brazil, the group rehearsed and performed with the Orchestra Sinfônica de Universidade de Caxias do Sul (OSUCS). The tour wrapped up with a performance in Porto Alegre, Brazil.
