Presented by Texas Early Music Project
The term Convivencia (or Coexistence) refers to the time period when the three great cultures of early Spain (Muslim, Jewish, and Christian) co-existed in the Iberian Peninsula. The intermingling of the three peoples resulted in intercultural influences on all aspects of life: social, intellectual, political, and artistic.
This concert will include a talk by Professor Edwin Seroussi (The Hebrew University) and a live performance by Artistic Director, Daniel Johnson, and members of Texas Early Music Project (TEMP), a professional ensemble that has produced three CDs containing Convivencia and Sephardic repertoire: Convivencia: Love and War in Renaissance Spain; La Rosa: Sephardic Love Songs, c. 1400–1600; and Night and Day: Sephardic Songs of Love and Exile.
Tickets: $30 general admission, $25 senior (60+), and $5 student with ID at the venues.
