Join us for
Music from Angel Fire’s
31st Summer Music Festival
August 15 - 31, 2014

Join the many friends of Music from Angel Fire who gather at summer’s end in the Rocky Mountain region of northern New Mexico. The summer temperatures are cool, the leaves are beginning to turn and music is in the air. Music from Angel Fire’s Summer Festival plays a leading role in the cultural life of the rural communities of Northern New Mexico by presenting world-class chamber music through concerts and educational programs.

Year after year, Artistic Director Ida Kavafian brings together performing artists and young “rising star” musicians from across the United States to rehearse and present concerts in a variety of intimate venues and educational centers where audiences of all ages and backgrounds experience the power and excitement of live music. While Angel Fire is the official home of the Festival, each August you will find nearly 60 world-class concerts and outreach events throughout the rural Northern New Mexico communities, including Angel Fire, Taos, Raton and Las Vegas.

Music from Angel Fire’s 2014 festival season celebrates the 30th Anniversary of Artistic Director Ida Kavafian. Please join us this summer, August 15-31, as we celebrate Ida’s legacy, look ahead to the next decade and build on her vision and leadership!

The Closer Encounters Series engages you in an enlightening "behind the scenes" look at the artistic process in an open rehearsal setting. The Musical Conversation Series is hosted by Artistic Director Ida Kavafian at the United Church in Angel Fire and provides a deeper look into the music performed at these two popular concerts.


Young professionals from the famed Curtis Institute of Music, Philadelphia travel across rural Northern New Mexico presenting inspiring classroom concerts to local students through the Festival's Young Artist/Music in Our Schools program.


Each year, a new work by a renowned artist is chosen for the Festival poster. Lenny Foster created the poster image titled Otoñal for the 31st Summer Festival. A wide range of beautiful festival posters from previous seasons can also be purchased.


There are so many components that come together to make this extraordinary Festival possible. You make this Festival possible. Thank you for your support!
