A year after we moved to this gorgeous town, we are looking forward to our second Festival de Música de Renacentista y Barroca de Vélez-Blanco.

Festival de Música de Renacentista y Barroca de Vélez-Blanco 2017

The Rennaisance and Barroque festival was the first we experienced after moving to Vélez-Blanco in Almería, and it was a real treat to see so many people dressed for the occasion, enjoying music, events and of course good food!

This year looks set to be even more popular and the town is already buzzing with excitement. My presence has been demanded by several people at the various musical performances and at the big feast too. Oh it’s such a hard life I lead! :o)

The event has been organised by Vélez-Blanco town council as well as research Group “Sur Clio” of the University of Almería, and offers a week of Barroque music and events. The event is yet another in the long list of afferings within the town that bhelps to promote the history and culture of the area.

The music ranges from the 16th to 18th centuries and focusses on the subject of peace. Additionally, there will be an “Academy” running from July 24 to July 29 which covers workshops each morning on many subjects including choir, dance, singing, stringed instruments as well as a history seminar. More information (in Spanish) is available HERE and you can enrol for that HERE. The Academy costs €120 per person. Enrollment must be completed by July 20 2017.

The events come with the full support of the town council, its residents, the University of Almeria and the following:
