Christmas is coming!

Schola gives 5 formal concerts this December 2018 – 3 in Santa Fe's beautiful Loretto Chapel.

An intimate concert in Santa Fe's 18
th century Santuario de Guadalupe in mid-December for the third year in a row (free/goodwill – no tickets required).

A Sunday afternoon concert in Albuquerque is on the schedule as well (free/goodwill – no tickets required).
