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.
Medieval Music Besalú, one of the Foundation for Iberian Music’s many early music partners, has just opened registration for its 5th Annual Course in July 2016.
Medieval Music Besalú is an extensive course in medieval music performance, held in the beautiful medieval town of Besalú, Spain (Catalonia). At the festival, students may take classes in all aspects of medieval music, from medieval Latin and Pythagorean tuning to reading music manuscripts, with of course, many opportunities for coaching in vocal and instrumental performance. Highlights of the upcoming course will include workshops in the Carmina Burana and liturgical drama.
