2022-2023 Season Announcements!

Sun, Dec 11, 6 pm 
Our Redeemer Lutheran Church

7611 Park Lane at Boedecker, Dallas TX 75225
Christmas at Our Redeemer 

This seasonal favorite features a lively program of baroque Cantatas, villancicos, and carols from Mexico, Bolivia, Cuba, and Spain. Spanish composers include the ever-popular Padre Antonio Soler, noted for his secular sense of humor expressed in the 130 villancicos he composed for the Nativity, Francisco Courcelle for his celebratory Cantatas for the Royal court, and José de Nebra for his glorious Matins Christmas service. Mexican composers from the Mexico City Cathedral are Manuel de Zumaya, known for his range of styles from Renaissance to Baroque, and Ignacio Jerusalem, a violin virtuoso working in a ’galant’ style. Cuba is represented by Esteban Salas, and Bolivia by an anonymous Jesuit priest. The dramatic approach of these 17th and 18th century IberAmerican works make for an ideal Christmas concert for the whole family.

Opening Concerts of the 2022-23 Season

Our season opened on October 1 with a concert memorable for its great refinement thanks to the shimmering touch of our guest artist Patricia García Gil, playing concertos of Martines and Haydn on a handsome replica of an 18th century Walter fortepiano. Jendi Tarde wowed with her vocal highs in the aria ‘Quell’innocente figlio’, and Nick Garza displayed his rich countertenor voice for two other Italian arias by Martines with texts by Metastasio.

Watch our season opener at this link

The charming ‘Salonnières at the Piano’ event presented by Ms. García Gil on October 15 delighted all who attended with short chats on the background of the three female composers she championed (Marianna Martines, Marianna Auenbrugger and Pauline Viardot-Garcia), along with their Viennese and French styled sonatas, played with a crystalline touch on fortepiano and modern piano.

2022 Summer Strings Camp

Highlights 

Out 21-22 season ended with a rewarding final concert of the 2022 Summer Strings Camp. New Spain musicians and Dallas ISD faculty worked with a total of 135 students this summer, a fine group of campers who displayed a notably higher standard than in past years. Clearly young talents are emerging earlier! We are making plans to continue working with these students in DISD during the 2022-23 school year. 

Thanks for following the Orchestra of New Spain
as we continue to bring you exciting music
in safe Live Concert situations.
