The Sangre de Cristo Chorale will begin its 40th anniversary season this weekend in Santa Fe and Los Alamos with “Autumn Legacy.”
The first performance will be Saturday at the First Presbyterian Church in Santa Fe, followed by a Sunday performance at the United Church of Los Alamos. Both performances will begin at 4 p.m.
The centerpiece of the concerts will be four pieces honoring the legacy of Monteverdi on the 450th anniversary of his birth. It will also feature works by Fauré, Stephen Paulus and Eric Eric Whitacre. There will also be Chorale premieres and other favorites that will create an inspiring autumn afternoon.
Dr. Bradley Ellingboe will lead the concerts as the guest conductor, and Nate Salazar will be his accompanist.
Tickets are $20 in advance, or $25 at the door. Attendees under 18 years old get in for free both days. Tickets can be ordered online at sdcchorale.org.
