Orquestra Imperial is an Intergenerational 18 - piece collective of some of Rio's best musicians, including Moreno Veloso,  Domenico +2, Wilson das Neves and more. The musically diverse members of Orquestra Imperial began singing old Latino love songs on Monday evenings in 2002, Their shared dream was to be part of a traditional Brazilian orchestra that had that ‘something extra’.  A few years later and Orquestra Imperial has not only succeeded in creating a unique ensemble and sound, but it has also become a music sensation, drawing thousands to their performances in Rio de Janeiro.  Combining different styles from the Carioca scene, the legendary, traditional and contemporary meet in this 18-piece collective to recreate the essence of Brazilian music.
