Osesp had been performing weekly since the second half of last year, when it also began to receive the public. In early March, with the departure of the State of São Paulo for the emergency phase, the concerts, which would open the official 2021 season, were postponed. With the advancement to the red phase of the São Paulo Plan, the group returns to the stage, but with a different repertoire from the one initially planned.

Today, the program (broadcast by Osesp social networks from 8:30 pm) will be dedicated to Baroque music, with works by Bach (Opening nº 1 in C major) and Rameau (excerpts from Les Indes Galantes) and conducting by the conductor and violinist Luis Otavio Santos; on the next friday, 23 and 30, the conductor will be in charge of conductor Neil Thomson: in his first concert, works by Saint-Saëns and Shostakovich will be presented; in the second, Tchaikovski’s Symphony No. 5.
