Orchestra Game Changer
Heliópolis Symphony Orchestra
Issue 59 | June 2021
BackgroundSinfonica Heliopolis was founded by Silvio Baccarelli in one of the poorest districts of Sao Paulo in 1996. It didn’t just change the perspectives of the young musicians involved, it changed the community. Even so, classical music in Brazil was a genre that had almost no coverage. The challenge was to give the Sinfonica Heliópolis, the first orchestra born in a favela, the visibility they needed to keep funded and supported.
