It tells you something about the low international profile of Spanish music that the pieces we most associate with the country... Bizet’s Carmen and Ravel’s Bolero... were composed by Frenchmen. Grover Wilkins and his Dallas-based Orchestra of New Spain are working to change that situation.- Scott Cantrell, Dallas Morning News

DID YOU KNOW...
The orchestra gets its name from the present area of Texas and Mexico which was originally called New Spain by the Spanish explorers. We seek to present music from 'Old' Spain in the land of New Spain.

25 years we've been presenting music of Spain and Iberamerica, mostly a repertory that was invisible to others. 60,000 people over 24 years, privileged to hear this cultural patrimony which ranges from the great masses of the mid 18th century Spanish court, to the humerous tonadillas in Madrid's public theaters, Soler's catchy Christmas villancicos, and more recently to the world of popular, secular theater and its zarzuelas and dances.
Whatever you do, mark you Valentine calendar to include our Flamenco show. Nothing like it in these parts: music, dance and a taste of 1930s Spain! View our 2013-2014 ONS Season Brochure (pdf)
UPCOMING CONCERT Thr, May 15 | 6:30p | Home and Garden II
For this concert we invite four of our musicians to dig into the repertory of the Spanish Enlightenment, to play works of the little known Italo-Spanish composer, Gaetano Brunetti. You will have the most unusual opportunity of hearing the sound of two Steinways in the intimate setting of a private home, that of Highland Park residents Ludi and Randall Askins. And that's not all! SMU's Carol Leone came to our rescue by recommending two stellar SMU grads to be our guest artists for the evening, Artina McCain and Eldred Marshall. Also we'll have just returned from Bolivia with photos and tales to tell. Join us for a relaxing evening to close our 25th Season.
Cost: $50 (includes performance, wine, tapas and valet parking)
