Quinteto Latino, a wind quintet specializing in the interpretation of Latin American classical and contemporary music, was founded in 2001 by French hornist Armando Castellano. Since the group’s inception, these passionate artists and enthusiastic educators have dedicated themselves to performing with world-class artistry in communities not traditionally served by classical musicians. Though a musician his entire life, Armando rarely had the opportunity to perform works culturally relevant to him and his community until the formation of this unique ensemble. By championing young and lesser-known composers of Latin American and Caribbean heritage, Quinteto Latino seeks to expand the boundaries of classical music, reach new audiences, and inspire new generations of players.

We’re starting our third season performing for the San Francisco Symphony’s acclaimed Adventures in Music (AIM)!

Over the years our AIM performances have been so successful that the San Francisco Symphony has invited their entire board of directors to watch us in action.
