2019: A Musical Year (March-May)

I  had not much time to write  in  our blog  and I do not want any visitor  who will feel that there is nothing  else to  say.   2019 had been running fast since it started right after Christmas with some inspection trips through Spain and Portugal as always, then some  trips to  music trade shows and conferences in the U.S and  then the concert season that this year started in  early March. We  did for  first time a performance ensemble who played world music from Texas which came with a string orchestra and a drum section who performed two concerts in Andalusia, one in Salamanca and the final one in Madrid.  Over  2000 people attended to their four concerts and  people enjoyed their music a lot.

We had the privilege again to  collaborate with  Witte Travel and  with  the UNiversity of Northern Iowa, its Concert Choir and with John  Len Wiles. Every time John   visted us in Spain  he brought  a unique repertoire that include works of  Shaina Taub. John Work, Carl Heinrich Graun,  Paul Christiansen, Brahms, Jacob Neverud or the basque composers Javier Busto or Josu Elberdin.  The light the  choir   brought to all audiences during their concerts was memorable.

May was  a  choral month, where we had the priviledge to tour with the Viterbo University and the Nebraska Wesleyan Choirs. Viterbo   performed in  Lisbon, Seville, Granada and Madrid.

The Nebraska Wesleyan Choir under the direction of Dr. Willian Wyman performed in Barcelona,Valencia, Guadix, Granada and Malaga. An intense week of concerts and music following the Mediterranean coast

The second part of this  calendar will start in less than two weeks. We  are proud to say  that for  first time, the Handbell Ringers International, an  international association and choir  created by different musicians/members from different nations,   chose Spain for their concert tour and will be touring for the first time. There is a big expectation as this will be probably the first time that a  handbell choir of this characteristics had come to Spain to perform. Among the concerts  that they will play is the concert  at the Cathedral of Burgos that it is celebrating its VIII centenary anniversary.

We promisse to be back soon with  lots of musical news and  updates  for the  next IVth edition of  Pueblos Blancos Music Festival down in Malaga mountains  this summer
