IMPORTANT CONCERT ANNOUNCEMENT
The New Mexico Department of Health has issued an order prohibiting “mass gathering” (defined as involving 100 or more people), effective March 12, 2020, and extending indefinitely. In addition, the Village of Corrales has prohibited all public activities in facilities owned by the Village, which includes our concert venue, the Old San Ysidro Church.
Accordingly, we must cancel our March 14 and April 4 Music in Corrales concerts (Socks in the Frying Pan and Friction Quartet). We will do our best to reschedule these wonderful performers for a future date.
In the meantime, however, because we have incurred some non-refundable expenses for these concerts, we would appreciate it if you would consider your ticket purchases as a donation to Music in Corrales.
If you desire a refund for the tickets you purchased for either concert, you may return your tickets to us no later than April 30, 2020, by mail to Music in Corrales, P.O. Box 2723, Corrales, NM 87048.
We will process your refund by check as promptly as possible.

The all-volunteer Corrales Cultural Arts Council (CCAC) created the Music in Corrales series in 1986 as a musical offering to the Corrales community. The series was conceived as a way of preserving New Mexico’s vast musical and cultural heritage, and a way to create a new one as well. What was started by a few dedicated persons who recognized the importance of music to people’s lives, has grown to an organization that brings exceptional musicians to the Historic Old San Ysidro Church where the audience is no longer just neighbors. Local residents and guests from the middle Rio Grande Valley share the evening with visitors from other states and further abroad.
The hope of the CCAC has been that everyone could enjoy a sampling of the world’s finest musical performances in a stunning New Mexican location at affordable prices. Still an all-volunteer group of involved members, we are pleased to see that dream continuing to grow and flourish in such a wonderful way.
