The Camerata Latino Americano is an ensemble of renowned Brazilian musicians with great artistic affinity whose collective goal is to promote Brazilian and Latin American concert music and to set an international standard for interpreting this repertoire.
The soloists, of the ensemble have studied in such major musical institutions as the Juilliard School, the Akademie Philharmonik Berlin, the Royal Academy of Music of London, the Guildhall School of Music, Manhattan School of Music, and the École Musique de Paris, among others.
The core ensemble is made up of strings, woodwind quintet, trumpet, trombone, piano and percussion, and the group can be expanded to form a classical orchestra. This formation allows us to approach the full range of chamber music repertoire, in addition to enabling the realization of works for large ensemble or chamber orchestra.
Since its founding in 2013, the group has performed in major Brazilian concert halls. In 2015, the ensemble released its first CD, titled Suite Brasileira Contemporanea.
In 2016, the Camerata attracted the attention of the International Society for the Performing Arts in New York and the Association of British Orchestras in London due to the innovative and creative quality of this Latin American project. Currently, the Camerata Latino Americano is preparing for its European tour and the recording of its second CD, which will feature works by Villa-Lobos and Darius Milhaud, including two works never previously recorded.
The Camerata Latino Americano was founded and operates under the artistic direction of its conductor, Simone Menezes.
