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 or call 575-377-3233 or toll free 888-377-3300.
