  • The Los Alamos Concert Association continues its 65th anniversary season on Oct.16 with Piffaro, the Renaissance Band. In June, Piffaro was awarded The Laurette Goldberg Award by Early Music America, recognizing outstanding achievement in outreach and educational projects for children or adults.
    The magazine, Chamber Music America, in a review of Piffaro’s latest CD (Waytes: English Music for a Renaissance Band), said: “(You don’t) really expect a great deal of subtlety from shawms and crumhorns and sackbuts and dulcians and bagpipes and the like … Piffaro blows away that idea. Certainly they display penetrating tone and serious carrying power, but Piffaro also plays with elegance.”

  • New Mexico residents are no strangers to the rich history of the Land of Enchantment. From the Spanish conquests to establishing the Atomic City of Los Alamos, New Mexico has its share of stories to be told and shared.
    It’s not uncommon to hear tales of the old days and wonder just what it was like to live with no running water, central heat or indoor plumbing, while having to grow your own crops and raise animals for sustenance. While most of the old ways of living have given way to technology and are no longer practiced, at least one place is still operating the way it did in the Spanish colonial days.
