I’m thrilled to introduce season 34, “Around the World.” Culture is one of the most defining attributes of a society and its greatest export. Music has no borders, it’s history you can dance to! What a Herculean task for a small village to put on a world-class Chamber Music Festival, one thing I know from my brief time here, this is one extraordinary village! Music from Angel Fire has earned the reputation as one of our country’s elite music festivals. Mary Kay Robinson, Executive Director
I would like to invite you all to Angel Fire, Taos, Las Vegas and Raton to take a trip “Around the World” with us for our 2017 season! Our festival theme this year features concerts that revolve around individual countries of significance in the history of chamber music. The music spans four centuries and will take us from Europe to Russia and to the Americas. The incomparable Imani Winds return for our opening week and our Composer-in-Residence is the amazing Kenji Bunch, whose World Premiere will be featured on August 23 in Angel Fire. The Curtis Institute’s Brass Project will be back by popular demand, along with other students that comprise our beloved Young Artist program. I look forward to sharing this amazing season with you. Pack your bags and get ready to soar around the world with us! Ida Kavafian, Artistic Director

Two popular ensembles will be returning in 2017: Imani Winds and The Brass Project.
