Music From Angel Fire Announcement

The Music from Angel Fire Board of Directors announces that General Director Nancy Ondov will step down from her position at the end of November and is pleased to announce the appointment of Ms. Elizabeth Harcombe as Executive Director.

nancyNancy has been with the Festival for the past twelve years, seven of which she served as the General Director. Board President Gloria Fishman notes, “Under Nancy’s expert leadership the Festival has continued to flourish. Nancy has ably managed all facets of her job so that the end result, a wonderful music season, always looks effortless. We are saddened by her departure to pursue other interests, but so very grateful to her for her dedication to the Festival’s success. The Board of Directors is looking forward to working with Elizabeth. Her commitment to Music from Angel Fire as well as her enthusiasm and expertise ensures an exciting future for the Festival.” Ms. Ondov remarked, “One of the things I appreciate most about my time with the Festival (besides the incredible music of course!) has been the opportunity to get to know people from so many different walks of life – Board members, musicians, staff, patrons, concert goers, colleagues and associates. As I move on to follow other dreams and start the next chapter of my life, I take with me so many memories, wonderful friendships and great gratitude for the enrichment the Festival has brought to my life, both personally and professionally.”

elizabethMs. Harcombe comes to the Festival from Chamber Music Northwest in Portland, Oregon, where she served as Program and Operations Director since 2007 and most recently as Interim Executive Director. She has also been a member of Music from Angel Fire’s seasonal staff for the past five years, where the Angel Fire audience knows her as “Lizzie.” Trained as a pianist, Elizabeth holds a bachelor’s degree in music and a master’s degree in music education. Ms. Harcombe remarked, “Music from Angel Fire has become a favorite summer tradition and I am thrilled to accept this opportunity to serve as Executive Director. With the 30th Anniversary still fresh in our minds, we have the important and exciting task of embracing our legacy, looking ahead to the next decade and building on the vision and leadership of the past. This remarkable organization continually inspires me, as the close-knit family of musicians, staff and supporters come together each year to produce this unique cultural experience. In my former position at Chamber Music Northwest, I collaborated with many of the artists who return year after year to Angel Fire, and I am pleased to continue this association with some of the country’s finest musicians. I look forward to leading this organization, along with Artistic Director Ida Kavafian and the Board of Directors.”

To ensure a smooth transition, Nancy Ondov and Elizabeth Harcombe will work together at the Festival’s Santa Fe office during the month of November and Elizabeth will assume the position effective December 1st. Music from Angel Fire will celebrate its 31st Season August 15 – 31, 2014, bringing the highest level of chamber music and education to the Northern New Mexico communities of Angel Fire, Taos, Raton and Las Vegas. The Festival’s outreach programs include a unique collaboration with area schools and the Festival’s Young Artist Program with the Curtis Institute of Music, Philadelphia.

Music From Angel Fire Says, “I Know Jo”, Do You?

Music From Angel FireBy Jo Mixon

This week our featured “I Know Jo” business of the week is Music from Angel Fire.

I walked away from this week’s story a little more cultured – I know you’ll be happy about that! I was privileged to be invited to attend Music from Angel Fire’s Opening Concert and Reception. Since 1984 world known musicians as well as talented young artists from the Curtis Institute of Music, all under the direction of Ida Kavafian, have been bringing exceptional chamber music masterpieces to Angel Fire, Taos, Raton, and Las Vegas. Music from Angel Fire is committed to the highest standard of artist excellence, and for three weeks every summer they provide 15 performances, gracing many stages in our area including educational concerts in the rural schools.

The concert I attended was The Beethoven Piano Trio Cycle 1. It was incredible to listen to such brilliant music, especially with the Sangre de Cristo mountain range as its backdrop. Awe inspiring and an experience you don’t want to miss. Kudos to Nancy Ondov and Ida Kavafian and so many countless others!

Music from Angel Fire, being a non-profit organization with only two employees, has a silent backbone of 115 Guild members and a Board of Directors who work as volunteers tirelessly year round to bring this festival to fruition each summer. They are involved in every aspect behind the scenes. These dedicated volunteers are the worker bees. They have fund raisers, man the office, sell tickets, set up signs, set up stages and chairs, organize receptions, contributions, and publications, and much much more, sometimes giving as many as 20 hours a week.

The concerts will continue on until the final performance Sept. 4th. You still have time to purchase your tickets and attend one or more of these extraordinary performances.

For more information and a schedule of the remaining concerts see their website at www.musicfromangelfire.org or call 575-377-3233 or toll free 888-377-3300.
