Transformed by Fire Suite, together with a collection of choral works by New Mexican composers
This work emerges from Taos local Ariana Kramer’s poetry, with music by Andrea Clearfield. André Garcia-Nuthmann plans to serve us as guest conductor. Transformed by Fire explores ideas on wolves from Aldo Leopold’s work, explores Aldo Leopold’s changing ideas on wolves, with larger implications for Taos and the world community. Portions have been performed previously at the Harwood to great acclaim, and performing the suite in its entirety is an honor for Taos Community Chorus.
Concert dates will be announced, once determined.

Mendelssohn’s Elijah is a piece of breathtaking beauty and depth. The Chorus was mid-way through rehearsals in March, 2020 when rehearsals were cancelled due to the pandemic. We will take up where we left off in learning Elijah in future rehearsals. Concert dates will be announced, once determined.
England’s Prince Consort Albert to Mendelssohn regarding Elijah: “To the noble artist who, when surrounded by the Baal-worship of the false, has, like a second Elijah, employed his genius and his skill in the service of the true; who has . . . won [our ears with all] that is harmonious and pure — to the great master who has held in his firm control and revealed to us not only the gentle whisperings of the breeze, but also the majestic thundering of the tempest.”

Past events: fall 2019 season
Taos Community Chorus and El Coro de la Tierra Alta from New Mexico Highlands University together presented “LOVE”.
We turn the audience into the chorus!
This annual holiday event combines the voice of TCC singers and members of the community in an entertaining afternoon. Unfortunately, the 2019 sing-along did not take place due to inclement weather but will return at a future date.
Many TCC members enjoy ensemble singing and extend the fall season to include caroling at area holiday events.
