Founded in May 2016 by Osvaldo Ferreira and Augusto Trindade, the Portuguese Philharmonic Orchestra (“Orquestra Filarmónica Portuguesa” in Portuguese, also known as OFP) quickly captured the attention of the Portuguese musical and artistic milieu. It’s widely recognised, by the public and critics, as one of the best national symphony orchestras.

The high standards of quality and demand printed in its DNA lead it to integrate a set of high technical and artistic musicians, such as instrumentalists awarded in national and international competitions, former members of the European Union Youth Orchestra and foreign musicians residing in Portugal.

The OFP produces symphonic concerts and operas. It promotes connections to other artistic genres in a constant search for the development of differentiating and unique events and shows, thus building the reputation of being an outstanding orchestra in the Portuguese music scene due to its versatility, eclecticism and vision of the future.

It has been a regular presence in the main Portuguese concert halls and festivals, with the participation of prestigious international soloists such as Eldbjørg Hemsing, Kristina Miller, Mayuko Kamio, Miroslav Kultyshev, Pavel Gomziakov, Pavel Milyukov, Ray Chen, Sayaka Shoji, Soyoung Yoon or Yang Liu. At the same time, the OFP has been giving an opportunity to talented Portuguese interpreters such as Ana Beatriz Ferreira, Carlos Ferreira, Cristiana Oliveira, Horácio Ferreira, João Bettencourt da Câmara, Luísa Tender, Marco Alves dos Santos, Raúl da Costa or Vasco Dantas.

The OFP is a project directed by Maestro Osvaldo Ferreira, one of Portugal’s most recognised and prolific conductors.
