Benefit concert for Santa Fe's Santuario de Guadalupe
Schola and Kansas City's Visitation Choir will combine their voices for a benefit concert for the continued preservation of Santa Fe's Santuario de Guadalupe at 7:00 PM on Friday, September 20.
San Miguel Mission (dating to 1610) is the oldest continuously used church in the USA. At the invitation of the Archbishop of Santa Fe in 2001, Schola has regularly sung a monthly Gregorian chant liturgy in the San Miguel Mission.
The Santuario de Guadalupe is the oldest church dedicated to Our Lady of Guadalupe in the United States (and Canada) and dates to the 1700s.

For many years the Schola Cantorum of Santa Fe has called the beautiful and historic Santuario de Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe (that dates to 1795), or locally known as simply the "Santuario," in downtown Santa Fe 'home."
A goodwill donation will be taken. All donations are tax deductible!
