V3nto Brass Trio

V3NTO Brass Trio
Since its establishment in 2010, the Chicago-based brass trio, V3NTO (pronounced ven-toh) has made it their mission to expand the boundaries of a relatively small repertoire. They bring brass trio music to life through the performance of obscure works and the commissioning and arranging of new ones. V3NTO received the Grand Prize in the 2012 Chicago Brass Festival Ensemble Competition and finished as a quarterfinalist in the 2013 Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition.
