Sights and Sounds of Spain
Join us on a fascinating musical journey through Southern Spain.

May 4-14, 2019


Experience the music and history of Spain as visitors rarely do.

With its lively markets, world-renowned museums, brightly colored gardens, flavorful cuisine, and architecture from centuries gone by, Spain strikes the perfect balance between old and new, traditional and modern, urban jungle and green parks.

For the musician or music lover, the word Spain is practically synonymous with the word guitar.

Accompanied by local guides and Thérèse Wassily Saba, guitarist and long-time editor at Classical Guitar magazine, we’ll explore the music, culture, history, and heritage of Spain on our 10-day, 11-night sojourn. With personal, behind-the-scenes access to artists, luthiers, and experts, you’ll experience Spain as visitors rarely do.
