ABOUT

The Risatina Quintet, based in Greenwich, London, originally formed in 2012 from a group of students studying together at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance. 

 

Quickly moving on from standard wind quintet repertoire the Risatina Quintet became rapidly interested in alternative music for wind quintet across multiple genres from pop and jazz, to Afro-Cuban music and film arrangements. 

 

"Risatina" means "Giggle" in Italian, a very apt name for our group who believe in the fun of a performance, and a performance that makes people smile.
