THE PROGRAM: "Legado y Leyeda," (Legacy and Legend) will offer insight into the story of the people of Northern New Mexico and the amazing significance of the San Miguel Chapel, a world landmark, through the medium of the Spanish Guitar. All proceeds go directly to benefit the urgent structural preservation of San Miguel's bell tower, lest this important piece of history crumble! Please come, help support, and enjoy!
THE ARTIST: AnnaMaria Cardinalli offers stunning virtuosity on the Spanish Guitar and brings the darkness and sensuality of the contralto voice to the most mysterious characters of the operatic stage and to the folk traditions of the Mediterranean world. With a life story to match the drama usually found only in opera, she has performed in venues from the Kennedy Center to the Spanish Royal Palace to European Opera Festivals, was the youngest person to complete a Ph.D. from Notre Dame, was "outed" as an intelligence officer by Wikileaks for her once-quiet work in Iraq and Afghanistan, and remains an outspoken activist for cultural preservation and human rights.
