America's Music Festivals: Sante Fe Chamber Music Festival

Airs Monday, July 9 at 11:00 a.m.  Perched in the Sangre de Cristo mountains, Sante Fe is the nation’s oldest capitol city and has become a hotbed of artistic activity. Between the inspiring landscapes, the devotion to art and the city’s own diverse multicultural nature, there is no wonder why Sante Fe calls itself “the city different.” The Sante Fe Chamber Music Festival fits perfectly into this unique atmosphere, offering a six-week season of more than 80 concerts, recitals, master classes, youth concerts and open rehearsals each year. The festival celebrates the city itself in its concert venues, including the historic St. Francis Auditorium at the New Mexico Museum of Art, the Sante Fe Lensic Performing Arts Center and the Simms Auditiorium at Albuquerque Academy.
