Terra Nostra Debut Album
Terra Nostra is recording our first CD!
Our debut album on Parma Records will include a variety of music that reflects our mission, such as Villa-Lobos’ String Quartet No. 1, Jorge Santos’ Piano Trio, and Latin American folk music arranged by our own Mauricio Oliveros. This album will speak to all who carry their culture with them to new places and new communities and will highlight the rich traditions of Latin America and the Iberian Peninsula coming together, just as we have all come together here in Houston.
We need your help to make this project complete! Your donation will help cover the costs associated with recording and producing a CD, such as studio time and professional recording engineering.
We can’t wait to share the finished product with you and the world. Thank you for helping us making this project a reality!
About Terra Nostra
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.
