|FIESTA! MUSIC AND CULTURE OF SPAIN AND LATIN AMERICA
Offered by: Manhattan School of Music
Travel with MSM teaching artist Ana Garcia in this one or two-session cultural journey through Spain and/or Latin America. We’ll explore the historic Iberian Peninsula, let loose at Rio de Janeiro’s Carnival, and Tango ‘til morning in a smoky Buenos Aires nightclub. As young scholars, students will examine the fiesta’s historical significance in Latin culture through an interactive, analytic study of music, dance, poetry, history, and literature and apply what they learn to discover how leading ‘nationalist’ composers recreated their culture’s ¡Fiesta! inside the concert hall. Schedule in English, Spanish, or both. This class is designed for high schools students in a variety of class disciplines, including history, language arts, Spanish language classes, and music.
