Founded in 2003, The Evanston Escola De Samba (EEDS) is a 501(c)(3) year-round music education program based in Evanston, IL that offers classes in Brazilian percussion and samba dance for students of all ages with an emphasis on underserved and at-risk youth. Founded in 2003, Orquestra De Samba (ODS) is a professional 10-piece Brazilian music ensemble that performs a variety of educational and concert programs in the greater Chicago area.


EEDS is an educational initiative of Orquestra De Samba (ODS), a professional 10-piece Brazilian music ensemble that performs a variety of educational and concert programs in the greater Chicago area. The idea for EEDS was inspired by the samba schools of Rio De Janeiro, which gather large groups of percussionists, dancers and singers from all backgrounds to parade during Brazilian Carnaval (Mardi Gras) each year. Based on this framework, EEDS’ mission is to build bridges across ethnic, generational and social groups while encouraging intercultural dialogue through the teaching and performance of Brazilian music and dance in Chicago’s communities.

EEDS offers workshops and residencies in the greater Chicago area as well as ongoing classes at the Music Institute of Chicago’s (MIC) Evanston campus. Classes at MIC are offered free to underserved and at-risk youth and at family-friendly rates to the general population.

Advanced students are invited to serve as assistant teachers at ongoing classes, residencies and workshops. This creates a unique mentoring opportunity that promotes development of leadership and communication skills, personal responsibility, and self-esteem. Students are not required to have prior musical training and high quality instruments are provided. All students enrolled at EEDS are invited to participate in public performances as part of their curriculum.

More information about EEDS, ODS and the Music Institute of Chicago can found at http://www.evanstonescola.org/.
