Music in La Mancha

Wednesday 4 - Monday 9 October 2017

John Whibley "Holidays with Music" holds its own chamber music festival in Cuenca, one of the most fascinating medieval cities in Spain, perched on top of a hill, in the La Mancha region. The old city is famous for its stunning views, hanging houses and artistic community. It is home to Spain’s National Museum of Abstract Art, as well as many other amazing art galleries and collections.
Over the last few years we have built up a good relationship with the Holy Week festival committee and the town council of Cuenca. They have provided us with wonderful venues for the concerts which have superb acoustic for chamber music and are only a few minutes walk from the hotel.


This year we are happy to have the Borusan Quartet, Mario Mora Piano,

Mamie Matsuda Soprano and José Antonio Domené Harp.

They will perform 6 concerts in La Merced church, and Cuenca Cathedral.

The Posada de San Jose is one of the most interesting hotels in Spain. It is situated in the old quarter of Cuenca which was designated World Heritage Status in 1996. Built in the XVIIth century it was originally a choir school. It was bought by Antonio and Jennifer Cortinas who have restored it, retaining its monastic characteristics, and now offer contemporary comfort combined with excellent local cuisine and a stunning view over the Huecar River Gorge.
