The Minas Gerais Philharmonic Orchestra was created in 2008 in order to promote orchestral music in Brazil and abroad. Artistic excellence and dynamic programming are at the heart of the group’s work. The orchestra comprises 90 musicians from all over Brazil, Europe, Asia and the Americas, and has received the Concerto Magazine Award in 2015, the Carlos Gomes Award for Best Brazilian Orchestra in 2012, and was named Best Classical Music Ensemble of the Year by the São Paulo Association of Art Critics (APCA) in 2010. In 2009, music director and principal conductor Fabio Mechetti was honoured with the Carlos Gomes Award for Best Brazilian Conductor.

The orchestra rehearses and performs at the Minas Gerais Hall, Belo Horizonte. In addition to its season there, it also tours the state of Minas Gerais and throughout Brazil during the year. Outreach programmes promote audience development through educational concerts and outdoor concerts in the parks and squares of Belo Horizonte and across Minas Gerais, and the orchestra takes pride in its commitment to fostering Brazilian talent, commissioning new music every season and hosting annual workshops for young conductors and composers. www.filarmonica.art.br/en
