The seriousness, commitment and quality in the presentation of VENTUS QUARTET at the inaugural event Chico headquarters, that took place on September 30, 2010, showed a great image of French-Colombian culture. BRUNO Lacrampe Deputy Director. Cultural Coordinator. Colombo-French Alliance, Bogotá.
In the world of events held each year in the country's private clubs, there are many options for music artists. Rarely you can find the interpretative richness, seriousness and professionalism that Ventus has. I have been fortunate to work with you at the Metropolitan Club and the response of my partners has been wonderful. Your quartet clearly represents the strength of the new educated generations who want to show inside and outside the country, discipline and commitment to the arts in Colombia. Many thanks for your love for the Metropolitan. Warm hug,

Director of Public Relations and Marketing.
Metropolitan Club, Bogota.

I am very glad to have found a very professional group as VENTUS, versatile in the performances, consisting of elegant and simple people. I worked with them as accompanying of my choirs and soloists. In both modalities is excellent! Keep up that beautiful work! You can go very far! It is delightful to work with you and more, to hear you!!
