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)
Sat, Mar 29 | 7 pm | Villa y Corte - Town and Court Zion Lutheran Church | Lovers Lane & Skillman
As the Enlightenment was realized in Spain under the reign of the cosmopolitan King Carlos III, the theaters of Madrid saw an expansion of the popular tonadillas while the court reveled in the beauty of the newly discovered symphonic repertory of Luigi Boccherini played in the Summer Palace of Aranjuez. A splendid introduction to the contrast between town and court. $25/Students $10 (ages 22 & under w/ active ID) and Family Plan tickets only available at the door
