Spanish music in Columbus' timeThis is the year of Columbus, and there's no better way to celebrate it musically than to hear the great Waverly Consort Saturday at 8 p.m. at Smith Theater at Howard Community College, as part of the Candlelight Concert Series. The ensemble will present a concert titled "The Year 1492: Spanish Music in the Time of Columbus." The fascinating program will concentrate on more than just narrowly defined Spanish music. The year of Columbus' "discovery" of the New World was also the year the Spanish monarchs, Ferdinand and Isabella, expelled Muslims and Jews from a homeland that had been theirs for centuries.
