For the first time ever, the São Paulo Symphony Orchestra (OSESP) will appear in Carnegie Hall’s Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage for two concerts led by their designated Conductor of Honor, Marin Alsop, who was principal conductor and music director of OSESP for nine years starting in 2012.

The concert on Friday, October 14, presents Rimsky-Korsakov’s dazzling showpiece, Scheherazade, plus music of Villa-Lobos, including a rare performance of his harmonica concerto featuring virtuoso José Staneck.

Then on Saturday, October 15, Marin Alsop leads the 158 members of the Orchestra
and Choir, along with soprano Camila Titinger, in “The Amazon Concert: The Sights & Sounds of Brazil.” In this remarkable fusion of music and video, dazzling images of the Amazon, as seen through the eyes of its myriad species, will be projected above and around the orchestra. Never in concert has the Amazon appeared so beautiful, or so fragile than in this 75-minute multimedia immersion set to selections by Villa-Lobos, Clarice Assad, Philip Glass, and others. This unique journey has been conceived by award-winning visual director Marcello Dantas, renowned for his fusion of art and technology.
