"fine rendition...quite lovely...first rate...warm ambience & clear sound...great ensemble playing"
TAXI A&R Review, February 2004

The Bellavente Wind Quintet illuminates the concert stage with music that ranges from sensitive poignancy to bold and daring drama to bubbling humor that has rarely been heard by most audiences.

Bellavente joins the familiar classical music of old with the freshness and excitement of contemporary music. The listener is fascinated and entertained with a range of material covering four centuries of great music written by both men and women composers and includes contemporary and historical original works for wind quintet and interesting and important arrangements that have made a strong contribution to wind quintet repertoire.

The lighter side of Bellavente includes a fabulous repertoire of classical pops. This flexible ensemble can sound like a classical symphony, a park band, a church organ or a Broadway orchestra and their charm, wit and artistry is evident with every musical phrase.

An ensemble of artists and old friends, the story of the Bellavente Wind Quintet begins in San Francisco, Los Angeles, San Jose and Hollywood and weaves its way through some of the finest universities and music conservatories of our nation and onto the concert stages of the San Francisco Bay Area. After getting a healthy infusion of rigorous training from the Yale School of Music, San Francisco Conservatory of Music, University of Southern California, San Jose State University and San Francisco State University, the Bellavente musicians met while pursuing their passion and love of classical and contemporary music and performing this music with leading and cutting edge chamber music ensembles and symphony, opera and ballet orchestras of San Francisco and its environs.

The Bellavente artists individually have performed with some of the greatest stars and musical groups of our time, including YoYo Ma, Placido Domingo, Charlotte Church, The Irish Tenors, Bobby McFerrin, Gladys Knight, Linda Rondstadt, The Moody Blues, Nelson Riddle, and many, many others!! They are members of nearly all the regional symphony, opera and ballet orchestras of the San Francisco Bay Area and were principal wind players of the former award winning Women's Philharmonic Orchestra. They also play as freelance musicians with the San Francisco Symphony, Opera and Ballet orchestras and with the San Francisco Broadway show orchestras of the Curran, Golden Gate and Orpheum theaters.

Bellavente artists are current and past members of the Women's Philharmonic Woodwind Quintet, the Twin Pines Woodwind Quintet, Golden Gate Brass, the Fog City Winds and the Westwind Ensemble. They have recorded for Sony Classical, 20th Century Fox, Koch International, Harmonia Mundi, Well-Tempered Productions and Reference Recording labels.
