Excellent music! Very good coffee shop! Easy to park as there is a parking lot! If you want to go by taxi there is a taxi stand right outside ! It is a pleasant experience if you like music and good coffee!

One of the greatest places in the world to listen to great orchestras and classic music. Unfurtunately, the neighborhood is awful, big sample of the third world misery, in contrast with the beauty of art.

Beautiful place, great music but utterly disorganized. Staff is untrained and rude, and the place is poorly signed.

Classical music is not a top of mind subject in Brazil. Even though, the megalopolis Sao Paulo homes one of the best orchestra house in the world. If you are a music lover you will want to be there.

If you really want to know all about this amazing place you need to take the guided tour. You must call at least 1 week or more before for reservations but it worth it, trust me!

Sala Sao Paulo is a beautiful venue with great acoustics. Get there early to explore the building before the performance. Or, check the website for a dress rehearsal ("ENSAIO ABERTO") during the day. After the evening shows, the crowd leaves the venue very quickly. You...More

What does "Digite aqui o codigo de tronca do seu Vale Ingresso" mean? I tried several times to buy concert tickets today but could not figure this out and my ticket order did not go through because I could not fill in this blank. I understand it literally means something such as "Type here the exchange code of your ticket value". I entered the ticket price before taxes and after taxes and anything else I could think of, but nothing worked. I really hope to buy these tickets and would appreciate your help.
