Until recently, we have been experiencing a record-breaking fall heatwave. In some parts of the world… Spain for example… these hot “summer” nights would have us dancing Flamenco in the streets and hoping for just a few more weeks of good weather. With a ticket to one of the hottest concerts of the season you still can have one more steamy, summer night. Next Wednesday, October 4, 2017 Clark Bryan and Marion Miller will bring the heat of Spain to the stage with Spanish Rhapsody.
Spain has a rich history of diverse cultures and religions. From the 8th to the 15th centuries Spain was strugglin
g between Muslim and Christian domination. The Moorish/Muslim culture from the north of Africa left a great legacy in Spain greatly influencing its musical tapestry.
If one thinks about modern-day Spain, with its Moorish Palaces, Bull Fights and Passionate Ardour, it is certainly a place that holds the tension between conquest and love. Spanish music reflects these contrasts and is extremely exotic when compared to other European music traditions. This program will feature music by composers from Spain or influenced by Spanish culture.
Join Clark Bryan and Marion Miller for Spanish Rhapsody on Wednesday, October 4, 2017. Works by De Falla, Albeniz and Piazzolla will be featured. Come out and enjoy the heat, passion and energy of this unique culture.
