Performance Santa Fe

In close partnership with local education agencies, Performance Santa Fe’s three award-winning education programs bring the vibrant world of music, dance, and theater to life for the young people of our community.

Performance Santa Fe's Field Trip Series provides local students with the opportunity to experience matinee performances from our extraordinary lineup of international performing artists. Anat Cohen, Music from Copland House, and Pablo Sáinz-Villegas will give matinee performances during the 22-23 season.

Arts for Life supports existing chorus, band, world music, orchestra, guitar, dance, and theater programs in the Santa Fe Public Schools by engaging professional Teaching Artists to work alongside the classroom teachers, providing individualized instruction, support, and technical expertise to students. In 2022/23, Arts for Life will provide over 600 hours of mentoring while serving Aspen Community Magnet School, Capital High School, El Camino Real Academy, El Dorado Community School, Gonzales Community School, Mandela International Magnet School, Milagro Middle School, Nava Elementary School, Nina Otero Community School, Ortiz Middle School, and Santa Fe High School.

Through the  Masterclass Series, aspiring young musicians, dancers, and actors have the unique opportunity to interact and work closely with the internationally renowned mainstage artists we present in an intimate master class setting. Performance Santa Fe is proud to offer 7 master classes during the 2022-23 season with artists including Daniel Ulbricht, Aaron Diehl, Alisa Weilerstein, Mark Morris Dance Company, and more!

In a community where nearly 70% of students qualify for free or reduced-price lunch, Performance Santa Fe is committed to providing unique opportunities to enhance the learning process through the performing arts by offering these programs at absolutely no cost to participants.  These programs are funded entirely by foundations, grants, and individual donors.
