Since their first concert in 2007 as part of the Chicago Latino Music Festival, the Ondas Ensemble has been delighting audiences with their inventive and unique programming of new and historic works.
Ondas – which means “waves” in both Spanish and Portuguese, also means “cool” or “latest trend.” Ondas works closely with contemporary composers, developing new works for chamber ensemble. Programming includes exciting collaborations with other music groups, guest artists such as Orbert Davis (trumpet), and dancers.Ondas’ performing members bring to the ensemble an impressive array of talent, as well as diversity in background and culture. Our core instrumentation is flute, clarinet, violin, cello and piano that expands or contracts depending on the program.
