Trip Planner: South America / Brazil / State of Sao Paulo / Sao Paulo / The Julio Prestes Cultural Center - Sala Sao Paulo
Julio Prestes Cultural Center
The Julio Prestes Cultural Center - Sala Sao Paulo, located in an old train station, is noted for housing the famous Sala Sao Paulo, home of the Sao Paulo State Symphonic Orchestra. The venue features nearly 1,500 seats and is used for regular symphonic and chamber music performances. The site’s state-of-the-art design is often compared to that of the Boston Symphony Hall and Vienna’s Musikverein. The train station building was restored and renovated in the 1990s, as part of an important downtown revitalization project. The station’s large hall was chosen as the main performance space because like the finest 19th century concert halls, it resembles a shoebox, considered an optimal design for such venues. Check the center’s official website for an updated list of concerts and other special events.

I simply love this place so must. For music concerts, TEDex, no matter, is always a great and special ocasion. I dream to get married in the foyer! Who knows some day.... ;-) more »
Good acoustics and astonishing and exquisitely refurbished room. It's surroundings are not safe at all. Do not go alone, specially in the evening. Almost got mugged twice...
One of the best concert hall in the world. On January 12th, 2021, Sonia Rubinsky delivery a breathtaking rendition of the Beethoven's Sonata nº 4 in Eb Major, Op.7 and Schumann's Etudes in Variation Form on a Theme by Beethoven, WoO 31.
