2021 Summer Festival

3 Seasons

Santa Fe Desert Chorale's 2021 Summer Festival: Unlikely Partners celebrates and juxtaposes music of contrasting styles and genres, by composers from across the world and throughout the ages. Under the direction of Artistic Director Joshua Habermann, the Desert Chorale, joined by stellar guest artists, take listeners on three distinct musical journeys: of 17th century Mantua, of 1920s France and the United States, and of modern-day Asia and the Asian Diaspora. The constant is the Desert Chorale's nimble technique, virtuosity, and the sheer beauty of their voices, both as an ensemble and as soloists.
