It seems that El Greco to Velazquez fever has struck the Triangle. The North Carolina Symphony‘s website has a great post about Music Director Grant Llewellyn’s experience at a recent Spanish tapas cooking class at A Southern Season in Chapel Hill, which also featured a presentation by Nasher Museum Chief Curator Sarah Schroth. Likewise, kicking off tomorrow, October 2nd, the North Carolina Symphony is partnering with the Nasher in a Spanish Music Festival, a series of concerts celebrating classical music with a Spanish twist, and presenting a new co-commissioned work by composer Stephen Jaffe.
