10/7      Goyescas: Granados’s Masterpiece Goyescas, universally recognized as a masterpiece of the composer who symbolized the essence of Spanish romanticism, Enrique Granados.

10/14    La Voz de México/the Voice of Mexico A potpourri of Mexican choral music, from the 17th-century to today, including works by Juan García de Zéspedes, Juan Gutiérrez de Padilla, Guillermo Álvarez, and Sergio Cárdenas.

10/21    La Diáspora cubana/The Cuban Diaspora Whether making their homes in Spain, the United States, or never venturing from the Pearl of the Antilles, Cuba’s best-known and best-loved composers – all born in Havana -- are featured on this program.

10/28    La Fiesta de Halloween It’s a North American holiday, but Halloween is now celebrated throughout Spain and Latin America, though it is no longer la noche de terror/ the night of terror. Perhaps no instrument can give you la piel de gallina/goosebumps like the theramin can, so of course, we’ll feature that early electronic instrument. We’ll also hear some fun and scary music from Spain and South American, including the complete El Amor Brujo/Love, the Magician by Manuel de Falla.
