Quinteto da Paraíba

The Quinteto da Paraíba originated in the Music Department of the CCTA/UFPB, and has been in residence there for nearly three decades. Today, it one of the most renowned chamber music groups of Brazil. Traveling with versatility between concert music and popular music, Quinteto da Paraíba has recorded a number of CDs, and has appeared on DVDs, movie soundtracks, shows, concerts and tours in Brazil and abroad. They are avid ambassadors of the music of Brazilian composers.    

While in residency at the Setnor School of Music, the quintet will work with students in the SU Orchestra, Morton Schiff Jazz Ensemble, and Samba Laranja, the SU Brazilian Ensemble. They will work with student composers, recording their compositions with Sound Recording and Technology students, give private lessons to string students, and participate in the Music Industry and Music Education department forum meetings as well as an all-school convocation, talking with students about their careers, special programs, and more. Quinteto da Paraíba will give performances on campus, a city school, and in downtown Syracuse. A number of the events will be free and open to the campus and Syracuse communities.
