Over the past year, the Santa Fe Desert Chorale has taken significant steps to engage in innovative collaborations with other leading arts and culture institutions and increase creative engagement with a broader and more diverse audience. Partners in these artistic initiatives include Creativity for Peace, the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum, NDI-NM, New Mexico History Museum, the International Shakespeare Center, the Santa Fe Symphony and Chorus, the Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival, and the Santa Fe Opera.
Building on relationships developed with last year’s Hidden Treasures of Byzantium program, ensemble artists will be previewing the Rachmaninov All-Night Vigil at the Holy Trinity Orthodox Church, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary this summer. New partners Chabad Center for Jewish Life of Santa Fe, The Jewish Federation, the Jewish Film Festival, and Temple Beth Shalom are all working with us to raise awareness about the Sephardic Legacy program.
Whether our community engagement audience is comprised of seniors at El Castillo and Montecito, young professionals/creatives at craft breweries, or public school choral students, the Santa Fe Desert Chorale is embracing its mission to “excite, engage and inspire diverse audiences with the beauty and power of great choral music.”
We welcome your interest and encourage you to consider volunteering to help us better serve our community in Northern New Mexico.
