Banda Marcial do Vale will collaborate with a PhD project developed by Margarida Cardoso, who is a researcher of the INET-md, at the University of Aveiro. During September, this project will give a new life to the Santa Maria da Feira's "coretos". Vale's woodwind quintet was founded some weeks ago in this local philharmonic band and it will play various works, written by Portuguese composers, such as Frederico de Freitas, José dos Santos Pinto or Joly Braga Santos. The concerts will be commented on by the researcher. This project has the support of Santa Maria da Feira's municipality and INET-md and it is a result of the project "Our music, our world: philharmonic bands, musical associations and local communities", developed in this institute. The concerts' program includes works written to the National Woodwind Quintet, which was founded in 1950, in the context of the National Radiostation. This group played until 1976 and had Luiz Boulton (flautist, 1908-1994), José dos Santos Pinto (oboist, 1917-2014), Carlos Saraiva (clarinetist, 1910-2001), Ângelo Pestana (bassoonist, 1919-2002) and Adácio Pestana (horn player, 1925-2004) as members. Santos Pinto's woodwind quintet is an example of work whom public presentations are unknown, so this project brings to the public works which had just a few interpretations since the end of the group. Vale's woodwind quintet is constituted by five young musicians of Banda Marcial do Vale, namely, Sara Silva (flautist), Beatriz Oliveira (oboist), Mariana Cardoso (clarinettist), Cristiano Pinho (horn player) and Beatriz Cunha (bassoonist).
