QUINTETO LATINO presents three works: Gabriela Ortiz’ Puzzle-Tocas, Orlando Jacinto Garcia’s multiple winds in the distance, and a QL commission, C U Z A – four nocturnes for wind quintet, by Felipe Nieto-Sáchica.

Happy to share this concert with long-time colleagues from Quinteto Latino, BRUNO RUVIARO will play a set of live coding electronic improvisations based on reworked samples of Brazilian music.

Since 2004 QUINTETO LATINO has grown from a classical wind ensemble exclusively performing music from Latin America to a regionally and nationally recognized music education and advocacy organization with a mission to disrupt racial and economic disparities within the classical music field by championing past, present, and future contributions by Latino composers and musicians. The quintet has commissioned numerous works, expanding the body of woodwind quintet repertoire. Quinteto Latino is flutist Diane Grubbe, oboist Kyle Bruckmann, clarinetist Leslie Tagorda, bassoonist Shawn Jones and Armando Castellano, founder and French hornist. (Season guest artist Jamael Smith replaces bassoonist Shawn Jones for this performance.)

BRUNO RUVIARO is an Oakland-based Brazilian electronic musician and composer. He teaches music at Santa Clara University, where he founded SCLOrk (the Santa Clara Laptop Orchestra). Much of his music utilizes other musical sources as raw material -- from Brazilian popular music to Classical sources, directly or indirectly through sampling, quotations, allusions, or collage.

Cost: $10-$25 sliding scale
