October 2021

Dear friends,

What a pleasure it is to once again have weekly rehearsals! Our preparations are well underway for our December performances of Dave and Iola Brubeck’s charming La Fiesta de la Posada. And our newly-formed Youth Chorus, called El Faro (“The Lighthouse”) is now up and running, brilliantly led by our new staff members Gabrielle Dietrich and Bora Ryu. El Faro will make its debut as a part of the Brubeck concerts on December 4th and 5th. For more information, or to buy tickets, go to our ticket page: https://abqcorolux.org/tickets/

We’re also excited about our upcoming FebFest, featuring the music of our guest composer and conductor, Dr. Rosephanye Powell. This annual event has become very popular. Given in conjunction with the United Church of Santa Fe, and held in their sanctuary, FebFest is sure to sell out. With only 90 spots and all of northern New Mexico invited, those places will go quickly! For more information, or to reserve your spot, look for the link found elsewhere on the website.

The Coro Lux Chamber Singers will combine with the New Mexico Philharmonic to give two performances of Handel’s beloved Messiah in December. These concerts are actually a presentation of the Philharmonic’s and we are simply collaborators, but we’re delighted to once again partner with New Mexico’s premiere professional orchestra and, to that end, have included information about those concerts on this page, as well.

Our rehearsals continue to be socially distanced and masked and our upcoming concerts will follow all current Covid-19 protocols. We are “betwixt and between” right now, with the pandemic not yet conquered, but normal activities resuming in a somewhat altered form. We’ve never before been so clear on how important the arts are, and how crucial live music is to our collective wholeness. We welcome you back to our Covid-19-safe performances with (metaphorically) open arms!

Brad
