Focus Residency

A Spanish Journey, Concert Program

Music@Menlo is delighted to present A Spanish Journey on April 8 and 9, curated by violinist Kristin Lee. The two-day residency centers around gems of Spanish classical music, including de Sarasate’s fiery Carmen Fantasy, and rarely-heard piano trios. The first event (April 8) is an immersive exploration of Spanish music and dance, with demonstrations from a colorful combination of violin, piano, voice, and classical guitar. The second evening (April 9) is a concert performance of the vibrant works discussed, with a rich program of 19th- and 20th-century music.

Focus Residency events are presented live in the Spieker Center for the Arts. Live stream tickets are also available for those who wish to watch from home.
