Music at the Meadows presents Orchestra of New Spain

Villa y Corte: Town and Court Music from the Popular Theaters
of Madrid and the Court Palace at Aranjuez

June 24, 2014

As the Enlightenment was realized in Spain under the reign of the cosmopolitan King Carlos III, the theaters of Madrid saw an expansion of the popular tonadillas while the court reveled in the beauty of the newly discovered symphonic repertory of Luigi Boccherini that was played in the summer Palace of Aranjuez.

This concert features Orchestra soloists Ana Popov, Jendi Tarde and Joel Burcham in a splendid introduction to the contrast between town and court.

When: Thursday, June 26, 6:30-7:30 p.m.

Where: Jake and Nancy Hamon Galleries in the Meadows Museum on the campus of SMU.
