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

Attended a concert last season? We'd love to hear from you! Please take a moment to fill out our audience survey.

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.

The Critics Have Spoken!

Of Windmills and Fairies

in the Soluna Festival, the Orchestra of New Spain, along with Avant

Chamber Ballet, honors Cervantes & Shakespeare.


…Choreography had the grace and charm of Baroque dance…”       

“...Wilkins didn’t draw hard lines between ballet and the sung music, creating a blending of the two very different elements…”

“…One of the joys of attending his performances over the past few years is to experience the growth of some of his singers, such as tenor Nicholas Garza and especially soprano Anna Fredericka Popova…”

 “…If you have never experienced Baroque opera, you owe it to yourself to catch a performance of ONS when they next produce such a concert…


-Gregory Sullivan Isaacs, Theater Jones


"...Colorfully costumed singers, vocal music sprung on dance rhythms, Avant Chamber Ballet added polished choreography..."

"...Period Instruments supplied their distinctive colors: the gentle sheen of gut-strung violins, the hollow-toned wooden flutes, valveless trumpets arresting but not too loud... led by artistic director Grover Wilkins, the playing was stylish..."
-Scott Cantrell DMN
