Witnessing a performance of flamenco music, with percussive guitar strumming that’s alternately lyrical and explosive and equally expressive dancing that sometimes accompanies the playing, it’s easy to see why VCU’s Flamenco Festival has been a highlight of its music schedule.

John Patykula, festival co-director and assistant chair of VCU’s music department, recalled how flamenco had been a popular attraction for them. “Every time I’ve had a flamenco guitarist on the series, no matter which series it was, we always got a big crowd,” he said. “People really seem to just enjoy that music, especially when they bring a dancer or dancers, and so I said, ‘Well, let’s have a festival.’ ”
