12/5 An Ideal Imaginary Concert Continuing with our series Imaginary Concerts. Imagine this: you are attending a symphonic concert. You take a seat and the conductor picks up the baton. But instead of playing the so-called “standard concert repertoire”, the orchestra instead starts with a colorful Latino overture, continues with a fantastic Latino concerto, and tops the evening with a full scale Latino symphony!
12/12 Spanish Music and Visual Arts Spanish composers seem to have a strong predilection for the visual arts. This is not surprising for a country that gave us Diego Velazquez, Goya, and Picasso among many other first-rate artists. This week, Fiesta explores the connections between Spanish music and visual art.
