Beverages will not be provided but will be available at a cash bar. After 9 PM people are welcome to stay at their own expense in the Point 44 and join Brazilian dance teachers and enjoy with locals a typical Brazilian night bar.
4) Brazilian Steakhouse Dinner (November 6th)
The AME2015 local committee invites participants to a typical Brazilian Steakhouse dinner. We will offer the dinner and the transportation to/from the Hotel, and beverages will be available at a cash bar.
The dinner will be accompanied by a Chorinho music show. According to the Wikipedia, chorinho (“little cry” or “little lament”) is an instrumental Brazilian popular music genre which originated in the 19th century in Rio de Janeiro. Despite its name, the music often has a fast and happy rhythm. It is characterized by virtuosity, improvisation and subtle modulations, and is full of syncopation and counterpoint. Choro is considered the first characteristically Brazilian genre of urban popular music.
AME2015 Conference previous survey about cultural and social activities
In order to better organize the cultural and social activities, which are optional, we need to get some specific information from each one of you. So we have created this little survey where we can hear about some of your planning. We are also asking about workshops attendance.
