About The Project
Terra Nostra Ensemble is Houston’s innovative ensemble dedicated to the performance, promotion, and preservation of music by Latin-American and Iberian composers. The music we play pays homage to our heritage and fills a void in the traditional classical chamber music repertoire.
Terra Nostra Ensemble was born out of the necessity to establish a Houston-based musical group that would speak to the heritage of the area’s sizeable Latino population. In early 2016, founding Terra Nostra members Mauricio Oliveros and Jackson Guillén discussed the possibility of creating a Latin-American string quartet which would focus on performing music composed by Latin-American composers. After further research and meetings with different art entities in the city, the idea evolved to encompass a larger ensemble that would focus on music from Latin America and the Iberian Peninsula.
