Victor Prado


Master in music from the Federal University of Rio Grande do Norte, Victor Prado has been working in the Brazilian popular music and improvisation scene for over ten years. Working with the horn outside the usual classical music scenario, he started to develop his own language with a focus on jazz, brazilian music, and improvisation, which places him among one of the horn pioneers in jazz in Brazil.


Victor has contributed with orchestras and artists such as Rogério Bottermaio, Os Amanticidas, Timeline Trio, Élio Camalle, BrisaFlow, KDC Guild, Progjazz do Absurdo, Coletivo Imaginário, Orquestra Jovem Tom Jobim, Camerata Paulistana, Orquestra Sinfônica de Mogi das Cruzes, Orquestra Jovem de Guarulhos, among others.


In the United States and Europe, Victor has taken some improvisation and horn classes with Tom Varner, John Clark, Mark Taylor, and Jeffrey Scott. In addition, Victor has participated in music festivals in South America and Europe. In 2019, he won second place at the Jazz Horn Competition in Belgium.


In 2021, Victor recorded a tribute to Julius Watkins with his quintet and was also invited to participate in one of the most renowned instrumental music programs in Brazil, the Instrumental Sesc Brasil, where he performed a concert with a repertoire of authorial music, jazz and latin american music.
