At home in Santa Fe, NM, Montage invites friends near and far to perform in the Altazano Salon Series. Now, approaching its 10th season, the Salon Series presents eclectic programs in the lovely Quail Run Clubhouse Living Room. Occasional private home events, usually sold out, bring the Salons back to their original pre-pandemic setting. Click here for the 2023-24 Salon schedule.
2024 brings the American premiere of “Los Nacimientos” featuring the soulful, poetic genius of Pablo Neruda’s poetry as set by composer Tom Randle and performed by UK artists soprano Gillian Keith and Dotdotdot dancers with pianist Debra Ayers.
We love to hear from you – ideas for future projects, comments on our performances and how you might wish to be involved. Thanks for your interest and support!
