Quinteto Latino is a San Francisco Bay Area wind quintet building community through Latin American Classical Music performance and advocacy. Founded in 2004 by French horn player Armando Castellano, this unique ensemble aims to expand the boundaries of classical music by performing works exclusively by Latinx composers. Through innovative work in venues both traditional and nontraditional, they strive to make this music available, relevant, and inspiring to audiences across cultural, class, and ethnic lines. Incorporated as a nonprofit in 2020, the organization additionally advocates on behalf of Latinx composers and BIPOC classical musicians through mentoring, commissioning, consulting, public speaking, and hiring – acting as an amplifying voice, both regionally and nationally, for issues pertaining to diversity, equity and inclusion in classical music.
Don't miss this opportunity to experience the magic of Quinteto Latino live! Grab your friends and family, and come join us for an unforgettable night of music and celebration. See you there!
(100 Years of Mexican Music for Wind Quintet is) an important disc for lovers of contemporary Latin American music to have in their collections. (The various pieces allow Quinteto Latino to)...display myriad individual skills (and) consummate virtuosity.
