The mission of Music from Angel Fire is to share the experience of chamber music throughout northern New Mexico by presenting intimate performances and educational outreach activities by exceptional young artists and world class musicians.
Our vision is to make live classical music accessible to all.
For 36 years, Music from Angel Fire has been bringing world-class musicians performing masterworks in communities that would never have the opportunity to experience the joy of classical music. Our mission is also to bring educational concerts and classes to the area schools as well as to main stage audiences, not just during the festival but during the year as well. We commission and premiere 2 new works each summer by top American composers. We collaborate with prestigious New Mexico visual artists for our program book and bring in students from the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia to perform free school and community outreach concerts. Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall Musicians are led by Artistic Director Ida Kavafian, now in her 35th season!! Music from Angel Fire is committed to serving these rural, lesser served communities of northern New Mexico.
Music from Angel Fire has garnered enthusiastic acclaim not only from music lovers, but also from art aficionados with its 36-year series of collectible posters and program book covers by top New Mexican visual artists.
