Mexican classical music is part of the theme of the annual Madison Early Music Festival. The theme for this year’s concert at the University of Wisconsin-Madison is “El Nuevo Mundo: The Age of Exploration in the New World.” Performers include The Rose Ensemble, Ensemble Viscera, and Chatham Baroque. The Rose Ensemble, led by Jordan Sramek, presents an intricate variety of Mexican dances and holiday music from the sixteenth to the eighteenth century. The ensemble is from St. Paul and is composed of 10 singers playing the violin, the viola da gamba (a Mexican version of a cello), and the vihuela de mano (a soft toned guitar).
