The Philadelphia Zoo will be sending colorful representatives to do demos at the Flower Show.

The Philadelphia International Flower Show (February 28-March 7) is a great study break for area college students.

In keeping with the “Passport to the World” theme there will be daily musical performances by the vibrant Brazilian troupe, Minas, who recently performed at World Café Live in University City.

There will also be classical and contemporary Indian dance led by Rujuta Vaidya, choreographer for the spectacular Slumdog Millionaire dance sequence presented at the 2009 Academy Awards. (more…)

Minas at the Flower Show Press Conference

February 3, 2010

At World Cafe Live in University City, the first press event for the 2010 Philadelphia International Flower Show had hips swaying with a warm blend of Samba and Bossa Nova music.  A perfect way to usher in the Spring and introduce the “Passport to the World” theme.

Minas, a popular Brazilian duo dressed smartly in turquoise and peach, lightened the air with guitar and piano solos that have made them a local and national favorite.  Patricia King and Orlando Haddad are a husband and wife band who’ve performed at Lincoln Center, the Kennedy Center and various Jazz festivals throughout the country.   They will be performing several sets each day on the “Explorer’s Stage” at this year’s Flower Show from February 28 to March 7.   So be sure to stop by, and soon they’ll have you singing, “So Danço Samba!”
