Angelita Romero Distinguished Lecture Series on Spanish Music and Culture

The Angelita Romero Distinguished Lecture Series is named after the matriarch of the celebrated Romero family of guitarists, who arrived in the United States from Spain in 1957 and quickly established themselves as an exciting and innovative presence in the world of classical music.  Angelita Romero (1910-1999) was a gifted maestra of the castanets and devotee not only of Spanish music but also art and literature.  Sponsored by the Center for Iberian and Latin American Music at UCR, this series honors her memory by featuring speakers whose research examines the long and rich heritage of Spanish music within its socio-cultural and historical context.  The afternoon lectures are followed by a reception and then an evening concert of music relevant to the talk.
