Patrick de Santos and Richard Miller
To Give Jazz Concert on Nov. 13

Posted October 31, 2000

HOLLAND -- Patrick de Santos, a native of the Cape Verde Islands, West Africa, and Richard Miller, native to Brazil, bring their wide-ranging, collaborative musical influences together into a voice-and-guitar performance at Hope College on Monday, Nov. 13, at 7 p.m. in Wichers Auditorium of Nykerk Hall of Music.

The public is invited. Admission is free. A self-taught vocalist, de Santos has traveled extensively, gathering influences from jazz, R&B, salsa and bossa nova traditions. He has recently been awarded a full scholarship at Howard University, where he is enrolled in the Jazz Studies Program.

Richard Miller is acclaimed for his performances of classical guitar as well as popular Brazilian and Latin- American music. As a classical guitarist he has appeared at the Brazilian-American Cultural Institute, Strathmore Hall, the Kennedy Center and the Library of Congress. He has also toured with the Alexandria Guitar Quartet and flutist Rebecca Jeffreys.

Together, de Santos and Miller have an 120-song repertoire that ranges from Antonio Carlos Jobim, to Djavan, to Gilberto Gil. The "Washington City Paper" has said, "Together, they create an orchestral sound that renders additional instrumentation superfluous."

Nykerk Hall of Music is located in the middle of the Hope campus, along the former 12th Street between College and Columbia avenues. Additional information may be obtained by calling the college's department of music at (616) 395-7650.
