This year’s Gala will inspire you to dance.
As a prelude to our Golden Anniversary, we have planned a marvelous celebration
featuring Spanish music, cuisine and flamenco.
We hope you’ll dress the part- we will!
This year’s theme is in honor of the Spanish composer,
Enrique Granados (1867 – 1916).
To give you a small evocation of what is in store for our Gala attendees, we’ve provided a link below to the rendition of Granados’s ‘Capricho Español’ as played by the great Spanish pianist, Alicia de Larrocha.
The Rhode Island Arts Foundation at Newport, Inc. is a non-profit charitable organization established to promote and preserve the art of chamber music. The Foundation’s major objective is to organize and administer the Newport Music Festival, a series of concerts held in Newport, Rhode Island each July.
While the Festival’s program focuses on the standard repertoire of the Romantic era, its concerts also introduce less well-known works. The Festival is a well-respected musical institution that attracts foreign artists, often making their U.S. debuts, as well as talented American musicians.
Funds raised by this Gala will help support the Festival’s continuing efforts to bring chamber music to the Newport community and to those who visit it from around the world.
