Ventos was born out of each of our member's individual passion to share their artistry and
inspire others while making great music
as a group. Ventos (which means “Wind” in Portuguese) aspires to engage audiences young and old with exciting performances of the classic wind quintet repertoire, transcriptions for wind quintet and performing newly composed works
for our genre.
Ventos is also keenly aware of the importance
of keeping music alive in our schools and
advocates working with younger musicians
through coaching, mentoring, etc. to find
their passion for making music.
As a Canadian ensemble, Ventos also makes every effort to support and program music by Canadian composers.
