Quinteto Latino blends the vibrant colors and vigorous rhythms of Latin American music with the sumptuous voices of the wind quintet: flute, oboe, clarinet, French horn and bassoon. Whether exploring new twists on traditional folk songs or premiering works by living composers, these five musicians perform with impeccable artistry and infectious energy – educating, enriching and entertaining listeners of all ages and backgrounds. This unique ensemble is passionately dedicated to a dual mission: to expand the cultural boundaries of classical music and to make that music available, relevant and inspiring to entirely new audiences.
