This year’s Free Family Concert offers É Gol!, a brand-new interactive work by Brazilian composer/pianist/vocalist Clarice Assad! Originally inspired by “Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls,” Assad wanted to share a tale of empowerment, daring, and possibility. She chose as her heroine female Brazilian soccer player Marta Vieira da Silva, arguably the best female footballer of all time! The work explores moments of Vieira da Silva’s life, culminating with a soccer match soundtrack finale Assad will lead the audience to sing along with the amazing Cabrillo Festival Orchestra, conducted by Cristi Măcelaru. Come to the Civic Auditorium and make music with us! Perfect for all ages, this rousing experience begins with an up close Tour of the Orchestra, and happens during the Church Street Fair.
