Meet us

Our Mission:

To provide the highest quality performances of Latin-American music, and to inspire and empower the people of the Latino community and the City of Boston

Since 2014, Unitas Ensemble has been performing concerts of the music of Latin America throughout Greater Boston and beyond. They are the foremost ensemble dedicated to promoting and performing the works of Latin-American composers in formats ranging from chamber performances up to full-scale orchestras and opera.


Unitas has had the pleasure of offering a wide array of Local, American, North-American, and World premieres of Latin-American works by young and established composers. In 2018, they released their debut album "Estaciones", recorded in collaboration with the Latin Grammy-winning Cuarteto Latinoamericano.

Unitas has also had the opportunity to perform community concerts and educational residencies throughout Greater Boston. This past season, in partnership with the Boston Philharmonic and the Boston Public Library, they presented a series of free, interactive concerts in various branches of the BPL featuring the works of Latina composers.

Meet Lina Gonzalez-Granados

Artistic Director


Lina is the founder and Artistic Director of Unitas Ensemble. She is a staunch advocate for promoting the music of her native Colombia, as well as the works of composers and artists from throughout Latin America. Her work with Unitas earned her recognition as one of El Mundo Boston's "Latino 30 under 30" in 2016.


In September 2017, Lina was appointed the 2017-19 Taki Concordia Conducting Fellow, a position created by Maestra Marin Alsop to foster the entrepreneurship and talent of female conductors. Recently, she has worked with Orquesta Sinfonica Nacional de Colombia, Orquesta Filarmonica de Medellin, Nashville Symphony, Dallas Opera, Ravinia Festival, Odyssey Opera, and the National Youth Orchestra of the U.S. She was also one of eight candidates selected to work with Maestro Bernard Haitink at the 2018 Lucerne Festival Masterclass.

Beginning September 2019, Lina will be engaged as Conducting Fellow with the Seattle Symphony. Upcoming projects also include debuts with Tulsa Opera and Santa Fe Pro Musica.

Commissions and Premieres

 "I am thrilled that [Unitas] previously programmed my work Last Round, and performed it with such energy and passion, and I look forward to many more collaborations in the future. 

- Osvaldo Golijov, Composer

The creation and support of new works is critical to the development of Latin American music. We are proud to have offered the premiere of a new work on every classical concert since the creation of Unitas Ensemble. Many of these premieres are works commissioned expressly for Unitas Ensemble. We record and preserve these works so that future generations will have the opportunity to experience them.
