In 2020, OCAM – Chamber Orchestra of the School of Communications and Arts of the University of São Paulo – celebrates its 25 years. To open the festive season, the orchestra will perform in the Music at MCB project, carried out by the Museu da Casa Brasileira, an institution of the Secretariat of Culture and Creative Economy of the State of São Paulo, on March 29th, Sunday, at 11 am, with the special participation by violinist Cláudio Micheletti and conducting by Gil Jardim.
Considered one of the main artistic bodies of the University of São Paulo, OCAM has been a fundamental reference in the scope of the country’s professional orchestras. His performance is characterized by the remarkable quality of musical performance, scope of his programming and bold design with which he develops all communication and relationship actions that support his artistic proposal.
Created in 1995 by Maestro Olivier Toni, its purpose is to support the pedagogical activities developed at the Music Department of ECA / USP, as well as to provide young musicians with the necessary instrumental practice towards a competent professionalization. It has a symphonic body composed of 45 musicians selected annually from students in the Music Department at USP and young people from the community connected to the university through its university extension courses.
Directed by Maestro Gil Jardim since 2001, OCAM develops an action plan characterized by a high level artistic program. Within the academic spirit, students are led to interact with various musical styles, as well as with repertoires from different periods of music history, national and international.
In 2019, OCAM released two CDs, both distributed by Tratore: “Sonssobretons – Musical Creations on Visual Ideas”, with works by contemporary Brazilian composers such as Alexandre Lunsqui and Valéria Bonafé, and “Segredos de Vera Cruz – Música Popular Brasileira para Gaita and Orchestra ”, with the harmonica player Gianluca Littera.
