Quinteto Latino is a San Francisco Bay Area classical wind quintet melding the vibrant colors and vigorous rhythms of Latin American music with the sumptuous voices of the wind quintet. Founded in 2004, the ensemble is devoted to expanding the boundaries of classical music through performance and advocacy of work exclusively created by Latinx composers. Their commissioning, mentoring, and educational initiatives are focused on accessibility & relevancy of BIPOC classical music in pursuit of inspiring audiences across cultural, class, and ethnic lines.
The quintet’s members have trained in the nation’s top conservatories and are committed assembly and teaching artists, having worked with students of all ages and abilities in both English and Spanish. Starting in 2018, the quintet launched their annual Quinteto Latino Seminario, convening a cohort of BIPOC classical artists from around the U.S. for rehearsals, workshops, facilitated discussions, and public performances.
