Santa Fe 2019 with Carla McElhaney
July 30 - August 4, 2019

Join KMFA for an enchanting music tour to Santa Fe! We will attend three operas at world-renowned Santa Fe Opera in its glorious, open-air setting, and two concerts at the outstanding Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival. 

Nestled 7,000 feet above sea level in the foothills of the Rockies, Santa Fe is one of America’s oldest cities, and boasts a long history and rich cultural heritage. During the day we will make excursions in and around Santa Fe to explore Native American and Spanish sites rich in history, visit artisan workshops, as well as have a private visit to the home and studio of famed American artist Georgia O’Keeffe and view the dramatic landscapes she painted.

Meanwhile, you will enjoy the deluxe accommodations at the 4-star Inn and Spa at Loretto just a couple blocks off Santa Fe’s central Plaza and the company of KMFA friends and hosts. With warm, dry days and cool nights, this promises to be the perfect respite from the Texas summer. We hope you'll join us for an unforgettable getaway!
