Osusp to welcome international guests and to perform varied programming in São Paulo

August schedule features presentations at SESC Pinheiros, at the Guita and José Mindlin Brasiliana  Library, at the Camargo Guarnieri Amphitheater and Sala São Paulo

The University of São Paulo Symphony Orchestra (Osusp) performs in August a varied program, with concerts for the OSUSP+POP, Música de Câmara (Chamber Music) and Sala São Paulo Series. In addition to the presentations, a free conducting course and a violin masterclass will be held.

The OSUSP + POP Series begins the presentations on the 9th, at 9 p.m., at SESC Pinheiros. Under the conduction of Luís Gustavo Petri, the presentation will have soloists pianist Heloísa Fernandes and flutist Toninho Carrasqueira. The repertoire features the works Colheita (Harvest), Vôo (Flight) and As Três Graças (The Three Graces), by Fernandes, as well as the renowned Ponteio and Dança Brasileira, by Camargo Guarnieri, Golliwog’s Cakewalk and Syrinx, by Claude Debussy. Tickets can be purchased on the Sesc SP website or at the box office. 

On the 16th, at 12:30 p.m., the Guita and José Mindlin Brasiliana Library (BBM) welcomes the Chamber Music concert. Osusp performs alongside Orquestra Errante (Errant Orchestra), an experimental group from the Department of Music (CMU) of the USP School of Communications and Arts (ECA), which is dedicated to improvisation and its connections with composition, technology, and training. Ricardo Bologna is the conductor. In addition to interpreting Arnold Schoenberg’s work “Transfigured Night,” the musicians will improvise in a collective creative environment also occupied by the conductor. 

The following week, the presentation is in Sala São Paulo, on the 24th, at 9 p.m. Under the baton of Nicolás Pasquet, a professor in Germany and conductor in Europe, and with the participation of violinist Nicolas Koeckert, interpreter and teacher in Austria, professor at the Music and Arts Private University of Vienna (MUK).

Tickets are available on osusp.byinti.com.

Seeking to promote unprecedented activities for musicians and conductors that aim to improve their knowledge, Osusp will host at the Camargo Guarnieri Amphitheater a violin masterclass during the afternoon of the 22nd, and a Conducting Course along the 26th and 27th, respectively taught by the guests Koeckert and Pasquet.
