The Minas Gerais Philharmonic Orchestra was established in 2008 and has become one of the most successful cultural institutions in Brazil. Led by artistic director and principal conductor Fabio Mechetti, the orchestra comprises 90 musicians from across Brazil, Europe, Asia, and South and North America.

The ensemble has received numerous accolades and awards, including the Grande Prêmio Concerto 2015, Prêmio Carlos Gomes de Melhor Orquestra 2012, and the Melhor Grupo Musical Erudito 2010 awarded by the Associação Paulista de Críticos de Artes.

The orchestra presents a diverse range of performances, including educational concerts, open-air presentations, programmes that identify and develop new compositional and conducting talent, and national and international tours.

The orchestra’s discography includes an album featuring the works of Alberto Nepomuceno, part of The Music of Brazil series on Naxos, as well as various other releases. The ensemble is on track to become the first South American orchestra to record all of Mahler’s symphonies.

Minas Gerais Hall, the orchestra’s headquarters, was inaugurated in Belo Horizonte in 2015, and is one of the main concert halls in South America.
