Christmas is coming!

Schola gives 5 formal concerts this December 2019 – 3 in Santa Fe's beautiful Loretto Chapel.

Sunday afternoon concerts in Santa Fe's Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe and in Albuquerque's St. Therese Shrine are also on the schedule (free/goodwill – no tickets required).

And Schola has also been asked back for an informal performance at the NM History Museum's long running "Christmas at the Palace."

When & where are Schola's performances?

How can I purchase Loretto Chapel tickets?
