AMBASSADORS

The Santa Fe Desert Chorale Thanks You!

Concert programming would not be possible without assistance from, and support of, many individuals businesses and organizations in our community and beyond.

Ambassadors are individuals who have an appreciation of the beauty and power of great choral music. They promote and support the mission of the Santa Fe Desert Chorale and foster a sense of community by introducing friends and neighbors to the Chorale, and are positive spokespeople in the community. They share their excitement and reflect a culture of kindness and respect. Santa Fe Desert Chorale programming would not be possible without the support of many individuals in the community who give generously of their time and talent. Thank you.

The Santa Fe Desert Chorale has a number of volunteer opportunities. If you are interested in volunteering for the Santa Fe Desert Chorale, please contact Emma Marzen, Box Office Manager & Community Liaison at (505) 988-2282 ext. 1. She can help you create an opportunity that best fits your schedule, expertise and needs.
