The Foundation for Iberian Music is delighted to announce a west coast sequel to last year’s fandango conference, “Spaniards, Indians, Africans, and Gypsies: Transatlantic Malagueñas and Zapateados in Music, Song, and Dance.”
This conference—which, as you can see, focuses on malagueñas and zapateados—will be held at University of California, Riverside, April 6 and 7, 2017. It is being co-sponsored by the Foundation for Iberian Music and UC’s own Center for Iberian and Latin American Music.
The Centenary and Anniversary of Enrique Granados Commemoration is fast expanding. Many talented scholars and artists have agreed to participate, and several events have been schedule for the future, in both New York City and Washington D.C.
The Hispanic Society of America has announced a series of three concerts of music by Granados in honor of the Granados Centenary and in recognition of the important relationship between Granados and the Hispanic Society of America. In 2016, the chorus of the National Cathedral in Washington D.C. will perform Granados’ Cant de les estelles. An academic conference has also been schedule for that same year, in order to bring together scholars to explore Granados’ life and works.
