New York Andalus Ensemble to Perform at Encuentros/Encounters 2014

27 February 2014: Next year, the Center for Iberian and Latin American Music at the University of California, Riverside (UCR) will hold its annual conference Encuentros/Encounters in both California and in New York City.  The conference’s theme, “Sounding Communities: Music and the Three Religions in the Medieval Iberian Peninsula” will focus on the relationship among the three Abrahamic religions: Judaism, Islam, and Christianity. After Encuetros holds its conference on the UC campus, the entire Encuentros 2014 will travel to Columbia University and the CUNY Graduate Center for its New York reprise (Feb. 27-8).  This endeavor is a collaboration among several institutions, including the Foundation for Iberian Music and the Graduate Center.  The New York Andalus Ensemble, Artist-in-Residence at the Foundation for Iberian Music, will perform at both the UC campus and at all New York Encuentros events.
