Founded in 1982 by Larry Bandfield, the Santa Fe Desert Chorale is one of the longest continually performing professional music organizations in New Mexico, as well as one of the most distinguished. The Chorale was a recipient of the 2006 Mayor’s Award for Excellence in the Arts and in 2016 was named the “Best Choral Group of Santa Fe” by the Santa Fe Reporter. Scott Cantrell of The Dallas Morning News characterized the Chorale as presenting “stunning singing…incredible power.”
Now entering his ninth season as Music Director, Joshua Habermann leads the 24-voice professional Chorale in repertoire spanning seven centuries, from medieval polyphony to contemporary works. The composition of the Chorale is truly national in scope and the ensemble is recognized among the finest American chamber choirs.
Throughout its history, the Chorale has maintained a commitment to give voice to music from Hispanic and Native American communities. Dedicated to advancing the composers of our time, the Chorale has commissioned twenty-two works by eighteen composers; three quarters of the composers commissioned have been American. In addition, another seven works have been given their world or American premieres by the Santa Fe Desert Chorale. The ensemble performs at historical sites in Santa Fe such as the Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis and the Loretto Chapel, as well as other venues throughout the Southwest. A recent highlight was an invitational appearance at the 2015 American Choral Directors Association National Conference in Utah which was later broadcast by Minnesota Public Radio.
The Santa Fe Desert Chorale presents both summer and winter festivals of concerts featuring a wide range of literature from around the world. The 2017 Summer Festival Season will take place from July 19 through August 13, 2017. The 2017 Winter Festival Season, “Home for the Holidays,” is scheduled from December 16 to December 23, 2017 with performances in Albuquerque, Los Alamos and Santa Fe.
The Desert Chorale prides itself on its strong relationships within the community of Northern New Mexico, and enjoys collaborations with Creativity for Peace, the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum, Museum of Indian Arts and Culture, New Mexico History Museum, NDI-NM, Performance Santa Fe, Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival, Santa Fe Symphony Orchestra and Chorus, Santa Fe Pro Musica, and The Santa Fe Opera among others.

Opened in 2006 by Chef/Owner James Campbell Caruso, La Boca is an intimate Spanish tapas restaurant in the heart of downtown Santa Fe. Influenced by his travels in Spain, Chef James cultivates synergies of authentic Spanish ingredients to create dishes both traditional and modern. Dishes such as smoky grilled eggplant topped with rich manchego, sweet saffron honey, and briny capers or thinly sliced tuna drizzled with blood orange aioli and topped with kalamata olives and smoked sea salt create a constellation of different flavors in every bite. "We're influenced by the exuberance of Spanish cooking," says Chef James. "La Boca is our interpretation of the great excitement created in Spain about food." One of the keys to La Boca's culinary success is its commitment to the highest quality ingredients. Chef James explains, "We strive to get the best, most authentic ingredients. This means staying true to the Spanish tradition to sourcing products regionally, which we do through our participation in the Santa Fe Farm to Restaurant Delivers program, and through the direct relationships we have with local producers of meats, dairy, and produce. What we can't find locally, we source directly from Spain--chorizo, pimenton, olives, etc. Sometimes we do both; for example we have both a local and a Spanish goat cheese and we take advantage of each unique flavor.
With the feel of a lively European wine bar, La Boca also features an extensive selection of carefully chosen mediterranean and South American wines. Knowledgeable and animated staff graciously guide customers to the perfect wine to complement their meals. La Boca also prides itself on being an ambassador of Spanish sherry culture, transporting its guests to Cadiz in the crisp cool flavors of Fino, or the deep fig-essence of a Pedro Ximenez.
La Boca shares its passion for Spanish food wine and culture through special events. La Boca hosts Flamenco guitar legend, "Chuscales" every Monday (no cover), and Nacha Mendez, guitarist and songstress who sings music from around the Spanish-speaking world. Additionally, La Boca hosts a monthly seminar with various topics ranging from cooking demonstrations, sherry tastings, wine tastings, and more!
Chef James is the author of El Farol: Tapas and Spanish Cuising, and will release his new book, Espana: Exploring the Flavors of Spain in May. This beautifully photographed book includes a primer on Spanish ingredients, as well as over 50 recipes for tapas, stews, meats, seafood and vegetables; scrumptious soups; hearty main dishes; and delectable desserts, all using fresh produce, the finest cheeses and meats, and traditional spices.
