Join us for Music from Angel Fire’s
33rd Summer Music Festival
August 19 - September 3, 2016
Gabriela Lena Frank, Composer-in-Residence

OPUS ONE performs at Angel Fire Community Center“At Music from Angel Fire, we strive to share our love of music and friendship with communities far and wide and this year is no different. Outside of the summer festival, we partnered in performances with Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, Santa Fe Pro Musica, New Mexico Museum of Art, Angel Fire Resort and the Cimarron Municipal Schools. The collaboration with Santa Fe Pro Musica is gaining momentum and, last January, was recognized as a model for sustainability at the Chamber Music America National Conference in New York City. This summer, in an effort to make festival concerts more affordable, we are pleased to offer an extended time during which discounted tickets can be purchased. And remember last year’s stunning flamenco performance by Yjastros? See them again at our all-new Viva la Musica! benefit event in Taos on August 23. We look forward to seeing you along with all of our MFAF friends this summer at the 2016 Music from Angel Fire Summer Festival! “
Elizabeth Harcombe, Executive Director

On Saturday, August 13 hear chamber music in the intimacy of the recital hall and mingle afterward in the warm, evening air of the outdoor courtyard at Robertson & Sons Violin Shop in Albuquerque for our 7th annual benefit event.  On Tuesday, August 23 You can show your support for music in northern New Mexico! Dressed in your finest Spanish attire, revel in an evening of traditional Spanish cuisine and the passion of Flamenco dance and music at the 2016 Benefit Event. Join us at Old Martina’s Restaurant and Hall, an historic adobe landmark in Ranchos de Taos. This elegant evening includes a 3-course meal, wine, silent auction, wine pull and spectacular entertainment. The night will feature the return of Yjastros: the American Flamenco Repertory Company alongside the magical music of Gabriela Lena Frank. Dinner package includes a reserved seat at the performance.

Continuing its commitment to education, the Festival presented the Music from Angel Fire Young Artist Program. Since 1998 this ever popular educational outreach program features performances by students from the famed Curtis Institute of Music, Philadelphia. These gifted young artists participated in the Festival's Music in Our Schools rural residency program presenting nearly 40 interactive hands-on classroom programs in the public schools of Northern New Mexico. The students also benefit from performing along side world-class artists with established careers during the festival.
