Quinteto Latino

June 17, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm CDT

This event was originally scheduled for March 10 and has been rescheduled.

Quinteto Latino is a San Francisco Bay Area wind quintet with a mission to build community through Latino classical music. Founded in 2004 by French horn player Armando Castellano, this ensemble aims to expand the boundaries of a classical music tradition by performing works exclusively by Latino/a composers. In addition, the quintet advocates on behalf of Latino/a composers and classical musicians through mentoring, commissioning, and being a voice regionally and nationally for issues around diversity and classical music.

In their Music of the Americas debut, the Quintet will present a program featuring a premiere by Colombian composer Felipe Nieto, alongside works by Gabriela Lena Frank and others.
