Created in 1994, the São Paulo Symphony Choir (Osesp Choir) brings together a group of singers with a solid musical training, and is a key reference for vocal music in Brazil.

In its performances with the São Paulo Symphony Orchestra (Osesp), featuring major works from the choral-symphonic repertoire, or in a cappella concerts in the Sala São Paulo concert hall and throughout the state of São Paulo, the choir embraces different historical periods, with an emphasis on the 20th and 21st centuries, and works by Brazilian composers.

Between 1995 and 2015 the Osesp Choir was led and conducted by Naomi Munakata. In 2009 it released its first CD, Canções do Brasil (‘Songs of Brazil’). In 2013 the choir released a recording of works by Aylton Escobar (on the Osesp Digital label) and in 2015 recorded works by Bernstein with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Marin Alsop, for a CD on the Naxos label. Beginning with the 2017–18 season, the Italian conductor Valentina Peleggi took over as conductor of the Osesp Choir and resident conductor of the orchestra.
