Mystics and Mavericks: Celebrating female sages and innovators both ancient and modern
Santa Fe Desert Chorale, Joshua Habermann, Artistic Director


World premiere of Caminante with poetry by Antonio Machado & Julia Klatt Singer


Showcasing works of medieval feminists ahead of their time: Kassia, the only woman composer in the Byzantine liturgical canon and Hildegard von Bingen, a patron saint of musicians. The Santa Fe Desert Chorale celebrates composer Meredith Monk—MacArthur fellow, two-time Guggenheim fellow, and National Medal of Arts recipient—with a selection of works that was recently released for choral performance, and has not been heard in New Mexico. Caminante, the Chorale’s 2022 commissioned bilingual work by award-winning composer Jocelyn Hagen enjoys its world premiere. Santa Fe Desert Chorale is also proud to feature another composition from their 2021 commissioned composer, Reena Esmail. Music by Moira Smiley, in-demand American singer and composer whose choral works are performed around the world, rounds out this powerful program.
