The Rossmoor Chamber Music Society’s second concert of the 2018–2019 season will feature Quinteto Latino, a woodwind quintet, on Monday, October 15, 2018, at 7:30 p.m., in the Tahoe Room of the Event Center.

Quinteto Latino is a San Francisco Bay Area wind quintet with a mission to build community through Latino Classical Music performance and advocacy. Founded in 2004 by French horn player Armando Castellano, this unique ensemble aims to expand the boundaries of a classical music tradition, commonly perceived as predominantly Euro-American, by performing works exclusively by Latino composers. Through their varied and innovative work in venues both traditional and nontraditional, they strive to make this music available, relevant, and inspiring to audiences across cultural, class, and ethnic lines.
