The Santa Fe Desert Chorale has been invited to perform a complete, 70-minute concert at the prestigious national conference of the American Choral Directors Association in Salt Lake City this coming February. This convention attracts 5,000 people annually and will give the Desert Chorale a chance to perform for a national audience. The Desert Chorale will mark this special invitation with a concert tour through New Mexico and Colorado. The Chorale will perform a revised version of the acclaimed 2012 program, “Dancing the Mystery” which was met with rave reviews at its last performances. This program combines the greatest choral repertoire with the mystical poetry of the great Sufi poets Rumi and Hafiz.
For information on how you can support the tour, please contact Jerry Nelson, Interim Executive Director at (505) 988–2282.
As one of the nation’s premiere professional ensembles comprising 24 singers from across the country, critics have lauded the Santa Fe Desert Chorale as a first-class performer of excellence in choral music. Currently under the baton of music director Joshua Habermann, the Chorale has assembled in New Mexico for more than 33 years to perform repertoire spanning seven centuries, from Medieval polyphony to contemporary and avant garde works.
The Chorale presents both summer and winter festivals of concerts, performing both challenging and entertaining literature from around the world. The Chorale is a mainstay of Santa Fe’s vast visual and performing arts scene, adding yet another rich cultural layer to the colors of the northern New Mexico arts landscape.
“It is a privilege to be part of a group whose focus on artistry cultivates a greater generosity of self and giving to the entirety of repertoire and to the audiences.”
“Working with this level of talent is truly something special for us, and ultimately, for our audiences. Our collective goal to make music greater than any one could do alone is what makes this such a unique experience.”
This ensemble typifies the spirit of the land of enchantment. Warm, curious and enduring. What a treat to rejoice in beauty together through singing!
“I don’t have enough superlatives to describe this group. Fabulous talent, artistry, incredible repertoire…it’s all there!”
