Quinto is a five-part vocal ensemble comprising choral scholars from the University of Cambridge. The group formed in 2015.
Quinto was formed in 2015 by five second-year choral scholars from four different colleges of the University of Cambridge.
The group sings one-to-a-part secular and sacred vocal music of all styles, with a particular focus on madrigals of the Italian Renaissance. This provided the inspiration for our debut concert in the Chapel of Jesus College, Cambridge on the 21st of November 2015.
Since then we have continued to explore the repertoire of small-ensemble vocal music, which extends backwards 450 years to Monteverdi and Gesualdo and beyond. We also enjoy singing close-harmony arrangements of contemporary jazz standards and pop. songs.
We are always excited to learn and perform new music of any kind! To learn more about us, and to enquire about performances, please do get in touch.
