WHAT DISTINGUISHES THIS FESTIVAL
The Santa Fe Desert Chorale is one of the longest continually performing professional music organizations in New Mexico, as well as one of the most distinguished. The critically-acclaimed Santa Fe Desert Chorale presents both summer and winter festivals of concerts featuring a wide range of literature from around the world.
FESTIVAL HIGHLIGHTS
The season opens with "American Voices" featuring world premieres by Composer-in-Residence Jake Runestad, with texts by Henry David Thoreau, and Frank Ferko's Song of the Sky Loom, set to a native Tewa poem. The second program "Sephardic Legacy" will be presented in conjunction with New Mexico History Museum's exhibit "Fractured Faiths: Spanish Judaism, The Inquisition, and New World Identities." Program three, created by guest conductor Dr. Richard Sparks, is "Sounds and Sweet Airs," commemorating the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare's death. Artists include pianist Nathan Salazar, actress Anna Farkas, and Harry Bicket in a Baroque program. Rachmaninov's All Night Vigil is the final program, with Joshua Habermann leading the enlarged 32-voice SFDC ensemble.
