SALISBURY, MD---The sounds of Brazil continue at Salisbury University as the Peter and Judy Jackson Chamber Music Series presents Canções and Lendas Brasileiras 7 p.m. Saturday, November 17, in Holloway Hall Auditorium.


Comprised of countertenor José Lemos, guitarist Marco Sartor and percussionist Danny Mallon, the group presents an evening of music crafted exclusively for SU. The program includes classical selections Lendas Amazonicas and Suite Popular Brasileira.

Lemos, who has performed with the series as a member of the Baltimore Consort, has received critical acclaim at venues throughout North America and Europe, including Carnegie Hall, London’s Barbican Hall and Paris’ Thèatre de Champs Elysèe. His recorded works include a production of Lully’s Psyche, which was released on the German label CPO and nominated for a 2009 Grammy Award. The Boston Globe has lauded him as singing “with a big, colorful, sexy tone and almost recklessly brilliant coloratura.”

As a member of the Charleston (SC) Pro Musica, he recorded two albums and toured the South of France, the latter filmed for a 2002 PBS documentary.
