Welcome to the 34th season of Music in Corrales! Our mission is to enrich our community with great music, and this season will bring artists and genres to delight you, inspire you, and expand your musical horizons!
Back by popular demand, jazz trumpeter and Corraleño Bobby Shew kicks off the season in September with his signature style that will make your musical heart soar. October brings internationally-acclaimed pianist Arsentiy Kharitonov to share his own compositions as well as pieces from the standard classical piano repertoire. Guitarist Rupert Boyd and cellist Laura Metcalf, performing as Boyd Meets Girl, bring an eclectic range of beautiful string duets in November. And in December the Old Church will rock to the exuberant tunes of Hot Club of Cowtown.
In January, the dazzling Ensemble Schumann trio (piano, viola, and oboe) will present familiar classical works. You won’t want to miss perennial Celtic favorites Fraser and Haas when they return in February to the Old Church for the fifth time. The Telegraph Quartet arrives in March to share their passion for the standard chamber music repertoire as well as contemporary compositions. We round out the season in April with singer/songwriter Joe Crookston and his stories of lightness, darkness, hope, and the cycles of life and rebirth.
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.
