The 50th edition of the Festival Villa-Lobos celebrates the work of the great Brazilian musician and composer across two weeks and a host of the city's finest music venues. Everything from chamber music to choral recitals and workshops make up the 60 attractions taking place all over the city creating a platform for commemorating Brazilian music both classical and popular (in keeping with the free and/or inexpensive ticket prices). Highlights include Sunday morning recitals at the Jardim Botânico (and its newly reopened) Espaço Tom Jobim, daily events at the Museu Villa-Lobos and the Brasil Simfonico series at the beautiful Theatro Municipal.

For the full two-week programme see the official website
