Celebrate the Santa Fe Desert Chorale’s 40th Anniversary with their annual summer festival, one of the nation’s largest choral events.
Pilgrimage: Songs of the Mediterranean Basin
Discover the musical treasures of this diverse land. We explore the cross-pollination of cultures that call the Mediterranean Basin home, catching a glimpse of Spanish, North African, Jewish, and Arab peoples through their sacred and secular music. Fifteenth-century songs from the Spanish Cancionero de Palacio stand beside Moroccan folk melodies, Middle Eastern hymns, Levantine chants, and Sephardic love songs in a joyful celebration of this musically rich region. Multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Fattah Abbou, hailed as a “North African music master,” and percussionist Polly Ferber join sixteen Desert Chorale singers for a program that unites these Mediterranean cultures through song.
Concerts on 7/17, 7/26, and 8/4.
