Celebrating their tenth season together, Vento Chiaro has excited audiences nationally and internationally with its unique and captivating performances. Founded in 1997 at the Peabody Conservatory of Music, its members were immediately drawn to the creative potential and educational opportunities of the woodwind quintet. By studying pieces of many styles and eras, Vento Chiaro is able to share music with audiences of all ages and backgrounds.

Vento Chiaro continually strives to produce an environment of high-caliber, entertaining performances to audiences, lead sophisticating and inspiring masterclasses and collaborate with communities through outreach programs to expand their knowledge, enjoyment and appreciate of music as an art form.

Recognized nationally as an ensemble of artistic integrity, Vento Chiaro won the Silver Medal at the Fischoff Chamber Music Competition in 2000 and was a semifinalist at the Concert Artists Guild. After winning the Saunderson Award at the Coleman Chamber Music Competition The LA Times declared “…the day of the woodwind quintet may be dawning.” Their hometown newspaper, The Boston Globe said, Vento Chiaro “…exudes black magic”.

As educators Vento Chiaro presents successful children’s concerts across Massachusetts and on tours in small towns with limited access to performing ensembles. Vento Chiaro held a position as the Ensemble-In-Residence at The Longy School of Music in Cambridge, MA from 1999 to 2006, where they not only performed recitals but interacted closely with students sharing their experience and musicianship as well as offering advice to young ensembles launching a career in chamber music. While in residence at Longy, Vento Chiaro developed a strong tradition of collaborating with composers in the Boston area. These collaborations allow professional and up-and-coming composers the opportunity to broaden their understanding of wind instruments and experiment with the infinite sound possibilities of the wind quintet. Vento Chiaro also does mini-residencies across the country and has been the Artist-in-Residence at the Orange County School for the Arts.

Vento Chiaro is in residence each summer at Boston University Tanglewood Institute.

For the past eight years, Jason White has worked with a team of scientists at the Brigham and Women\'s Hospital and Harvard Medical School to develop a method to perform noninvasive brain surgery with focused ultrasound. Now approaching the final phase of clinical trials, this project has gained significant media attention and was recently profiled by CNN, NBC Nightly News, and the BBC. Previously, while at the Peabody Conservatory in Baltimore, Maryland, Jason was instrumental in the development of a virtual performance environment in which the acoustical characteristics of a space would be accurately computer-controlled in real-time. In 1994, he was named Schwarz Scholar by Florida State University for his contributions to science and the humanities. The award was presented by Nobel Laureate Robert Schrieffer.

Sometimes, Jason plays the French horn.
