Saturday, February 8, 2020 – 7:30 p.m.
Advance tickets to Acoustic Eidolon are no longer available. However, a limited number of tickets are frequently available at the door due to ticket-holders who are unable to attend. We will start a waiting list at 6:30pm at the Old Church on Saturday, February 8, and will make tickets available for as many seats as are unoccupied at 7:20pm.
Acoustic Eidolon, the husband-and-wife duo of cellist Hannah Alkire and guitarist Joe Scott, returns to Music in Corrales. Joe is the only double-neck guitjo player in the world. (Wonder what a guitjo is? Well, come and see!) Together, their music blends the harp-like sound of Joe’s guitjo with the warmth of Hannah’s cello for a unique take on a wide variety of musical styles.
The 33rd season of Music in Corrales will be exciting, with a wide range of artists and musical styles. The eight-concert line-up includes jazz, folk, Celtic, classical, blues, and more – all selected to delight you, inspire you, and expand your musical horizons.
Corrales Cultural Arts Council (CCAC ) recognizes that each child is an individual; that all children are creative; that all children need to succeed. We are committed to fostering a sense of community as well as offering the highest level of musical performance and instruction. Our hope is to provide students of all ages with the skills they need
to enjoy music for a lifetime.
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.
