2017 International Spanish Music Festival
Casa de España en Minnesota presents three different performances and a workshop by internationally acclaimed musicians at four venues in St. Paul & Minneapolis.
The 2017 International Spanish Music Festival presents a diversity of lesser-heard music of Spain and Latin America to portray the variety and richness of their cultures and traditions and to broaden the awareness of Spanish music. The repertoire includes a variety of classical and traditional music, including elements of Sephardic, Spanish, Argentinian, and Mexican music, and covers different musical periods, from Early Music in Spain to the 20th Century in Argentina.
Each concert will begin with an introduction by the musicians, who will explain the background and cultural significance of the music being presented so that the audience can gain deeper appreciation.
Casa de España en Minnesota is a non-profit organization officially established in 2010. It is quickly becoming recognized as the resource in Minnesota for people interested in the Spanish speaking culture, presenting monthly movie showings, Spanish conversational groups, cooking classes, and children’s activities.
