Santa Fe Desert Chorale
The Santa Fe Desert Chorale has been thrilling audiences, including many guests of The Hacienda Nicholas Bed & Breakfast Inn, for the past 28 years. The group's much anticipated 2011 season begins on July 7 and runs through August 12. Performances may be enjoyed at various venues in Santa Fe and Albuquerque, including the Lensic Performing Arts Center, the Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis and the Loretto Chapel.
Programs this summer include "Great Cathedral Music: The Spirit Soars", with music by Bach Brahms & Mendelssohn, "J.S. Bach, Mass in B Minor" and "Songs of War and Peace", with a selection of dramatic and powerful music conveying the world's ongoing struggles and angst.
The Desert Chorale, made up of 24 spectacular chorale singers from throughout the country, is one of the premiere chorale groups in the country. They perform to sold-out audiences twice a year - in the summer as well as over the December holiday season.
