Abiquiu Chamber Music

Please join us in beautiful Abiquiu--longtime home of legendary artist Georgia O'Keeffe--for extraordinary chamber music as it should be experienced: in an intimate setting, offering close proximity between audience and performers. The venue is located right on the Rio Chama and seating is outdoors on covered porches and decks, allowing for the merging of music with the sounds of nature. The concerts present distinguished artists performing chamber music in a variety of styles and periods. After the performances the audience is invited to mingle and talk with the artists. We think Georgia would be pleased!
