Pe­riod per­for­mances:

Pasatiempo - - Acts Random -

Loretto Chapel serves as the in­ti­mate venue for the an­nual Christ­mas per­for­mances of the Santa Fe Pro Mu­sica Baroque En­sem­ble. Pe­ri­odin­stru­ment in­ter­pre­ta­tions of late-Baroque works are on the menu, which this year fo­cuses on three of the era’s big names: George Frid­eric Han­del, through selections from the first con­certo of his Op. 6 con­certi grossi (here ar­ranged to add wood­winds to the com­poser’s scor­ing); Ge­org Philipp Tele­mann, through the Quar­tet in Gma­jor from the first vol­ume of his Tafel­musik; and An­to­nio Vi­valdi, through ex­cerpts from his psalm-set­ting Lau­date pueri Dominum (RV 600). The pro­gram con­cludes with a se­lec­tion of Christ­mas car­ols from olden times. You will hear ei­ther Deb­o­rah Do­man­ski or Drea Press­ley as the fea­tured mezzo-so­prano, de­pend­ing on the per­for­mance. Con­certs take place at 6 and 8 p. m. ev­ery evening from Fri­day, Dec. 19, through Wed­nes­day, Dec. 24, at Loretto Chapel (207 Old Santa Fe Trail), and tick­ets ($35 to $70, de­pend­ing on the date) can be ob­tained through Tick­ets Santa Fe at the Len­sic ( 505- 988- 1234, www.tick­etssantafe.org).
