Dear friends of Coro Lux,

We are very much looking forward to our 5th season! In a few short years Coro Lux has grown to be one of the top choruses in the state.

This season’s highlights include three performances with the New Mexico Philharmonic: Vivaldi’s Gloria in October, Handel’s Messiah in December and my own Requiem for chorus and orchestra in April. In addition we will reprise Johnson’s Considering Matthew Shepard— a piece which proved so popular last April we’re taking the unprecedented step of bringing it back into our new season.

Coro Lux will perform twice in Santa Fe this season, thus expanding our profile in the state capitol.  Beyond this, we’ll perform Rutter’s Magnificat in December and celebrate the 5th anniversary of our annual spring pops concert, once again at the beautiful outdoor patio of the Canteen Brewhouse.

Our unofficial motto is to “do good while we’re doing well.” This season our efforts will benefit those who struggle with issues related to vision. However, not only do we hope to help those with problems with their eyesight. We also hope that being present for live, glorious music will open up new vistas of beauty and understanding among our audiences. Please join us!
