The University of Texas at El Paso has been approved for a $28,000 Grants for Arts Projects award from the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) to support the Early Music Latin America Festival. This project includes a concert and free workshop to promote music from the 16-18th centuries from Latin American countries.

Recent musicological research has shown that this repertoire contains diverse influences of critical importance to cultural and music-historical narratives. Led by Project Director, Lindsey Macchiarella, the University of Texas at El Paso seeks to strengthen the performance and dissemination of this repertoire in the borderlands and beyond, transforming prevailing music-historical narratives of early classical music and establishing UTEP as a center for early Latin American music.

The early Latin American music workshop will take place March 1-4 and the concert will be performed and live-streamed on March 2. The concert will feature LeStrange viol consort performing with Mary Springfels, Daniel Meyers, Jason Priset, and Estelí Gomez.
