Program Notes

Summer in Rio is a work depicting a South American festival. This entertaining work is filled with Latin melody and lively rhythms.

- Program Note by publisher


While Summer in Rio is perhaps one of Claude T. Smith’s lesser known works, it definitely possesses his trademark style of writing. Written as a reflection of a Latin American festival, Summer in Rio makes full use of Latin percussion instruments and utilizes a rhythmic groove that quickly relates to audiences of all ages.
