Santa Fe Pro Musica's “Baroque Christmas”

During the holiday season, Santa Fe Pro Musica transforms the twelve days of Christmas into  twelve enchanting concerts  in the festively decorated Loretto Chapel. Step back into the 18th century and experience baroque chamber music as it is meant to be heard—in an intimate, resonant, and glorious space. The Pro Musica Baroque Ensemble will perform the music of the masters Handel, Vivaldi, and Telemann, and will introduce you to the music of the French baroque composer (and virtuoso flutist) Michel Blavet. The concert will conclude with our signature set of traditional Christmas carols arranged for our merry band of strings, flute, and voice.
