The Gift of Music

Looking for the perfect Valentine’s Day gift? Give the the warmth of Brazilian song with an evening of memorable music at Symphony Center with Caetano Veloso & Sons.

It’s been nearly three years since Caetano Veloso’s last sold-out Chicago concert event. It was an amazing evening of samba and alegria when he took to the stage with Rio’s Teresa Cristina by his side.

This April 9th Caetano Veloso’s return marks a family affair, with sons Moreno, Zeca and Tom joining their dad on stage in a remarkable evening of rich harmony and musical memories.

What can we expect?

Well, let’s begin with the album’s title. Ofertório comes from a song written for Caetano Veloso’s mother for her 90th birthday and was performed during a special mass to mark the occasion.

You can expect to hear favorite songs from Veloso’s long career, including ‘O Leãozinho’ and ‘Um Canto De Afoxé Para O Bloco Do Ilê’.

Plus, we’re sure to hear a new song from Zeca Veloso. We are told that ‘Todo Homem’ will make its Midwest debut when Chicago’s Symphony Center Presents Caetano Veloso & Sons on Tuesday, April 9th.

In fact, Caetano Veloso’s Chicago date will be his only Midwest convert event in 2019.

Family Affair

When asked recently about the ideas behind Ofertório, Caetano Veloso summed it up as a living tribute to his mother’s memory by also dedicating it to the mothers of his sons, Andrea Gadelha (Dedé) and Paula Lavigne.

Ofertório is also a debt of gratitude to Caetano’s songwriting partner Cézar Mendes.

“I sing with them for what this represents of joy celebration, without considering the social sense of heritage”, Caetano said.

With their sublimely blended vocals and charming instrumental talent, Veloso and his sons’ warm, collective spirit bridges traditional Brazilian music with pop, rock and folk influences.

Don’t wait! Reserve your best seats now.
