Concert at the Alcazar

The United Nations has designated 2009 as the International Year of Reconciliation. In observance of that declaration, one of the nightly outdoor concerts in the gardens of the Alcazar highlighted medieval music on period instruments representing the three major religions which coexisted in Spain for several hundred years: Christianity, Islam, and Judaism. (See the July 12th blog entry 'While the Students Are Away' for more pictures from the Alcazar). The class got together for a dinner at a sidewalk cafe and then went to concert. It was a very pleasant and entertaining evening. Please pardon the poor quality of the night-time pictures. We didn't want to use a flash. Concert Photo Album
