Born in 1975 in Osasco (São Paulo – Brazil), Alexandre Silvério is one of the few bassoonists in the world who plays both Classical and Jazz. He is the principal bassoonist of the São Paulo State Symphony Orchestra (called in Brazil as OSESP), but also a very committed jazz bassoonist.

In 1999, Alexandre was awarded a scholarship from the Vitae Institute to study at the “Hochschule für Musik Hanns Eisler in Berlin,” with his hero, inspiration, and bassoon legend Klaus Thunemann.

In 2002, he was accepted into the Berlin Philharmonic Academy (Karajan Akademie), where he had the opportunity to study with Markus Weidmann, Marion Reinhardt, and Stefan Schweigert.
In Berlin, he played with the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, the Berlin Symphony Orchestra, where he also had the opportunity to work with some of the best musicians and conductors of our day.

In addition to playing with OSESP, Alexandre teaches at the prestigious “Escola Municipal de Música de São Paulo” (Municipal School of Music), is part of OSESP BASSOONS, OSESP WOODWIND QUINTET, and is part of a jazz group named after himself.
