Arcomusical Brasil is the sister-ensemble of Projeto Arcomusical, based in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. The group formed in early 2016 as the result of an invitation Beyer received to perform at the first Bow Music Conference in Durban, South Africa. Thanks to a visiting professorship at the Federal University of Minas Gerais, Beyer had already worked with this group of very talented musicians. In preparation for Africa, he organized these musicians, applied for and received governmental travel grant funding from Música Minas. The experience so galvanized the ensemble that they officially became a part of Arcomusical NFP shortly after the conference and now continue to compose, collaborate, and perform repertoire that is increasingly their own. Just as Projeto Arcomusical functions in the United States, Arcomusical Brasil is fulfilling the Arcomusical mission in Brazil.
