Sao Paulo Symphony Orchestra
Considered the most important symphonic group in Latin America, the Sao Paulo Symphony Orchestra presents almost 100 performances each concert season, most of them sold-out at the Sala Sao Paulo, which seats 1500. Under the direction of Maestro John Neschling since 1997, the orchestra has grown to become a major world symphony and has toured Latin America, Europe and the United States. They have recorded over twenty CDs on the Swedish label BIS. The symphony incorporates a choral group for symphonic and chamber music, as well as chamber groups that interpret the music of Bach, Rossini, Mozart, and Brahms, among others.
