Announcing the first concert of our Fall 2023 Series: Monteverdi’s Venice


Soprano Emily Noël and lutenist player Michael Leopold join us to present a concert of music by Monteverdi, Marini, Castello, Strozzi, Merula and Kapsperger.

The concert will take place September 17, 2023, 3:00pm in the gallery of the New Mexico School for the Arts.



We regret to note that Severall Friends’ Sunday, September 17 concert–Monteverdi’s Venice–has been canceled. Our singer, Emily Noel, is ill. We will reschedule it for later this season. If you bought a ticket, we will begin processing reimbursements on Monday.

If you’d like a sneak peek at some of the instrumental repertoire from the concert, please join us for September 16th’s MarketMusic, the last concert of the summer season, at NMSA at noon.

Join us in Santa Fe to celebrate our newest concert series – MarketMusic!


Taking place near the Farmer’s Market, this series of Baroque music will be paired with brief talks on food, given by local experts. Admission by donation; suggested donation: $20. The Sanbusco Center/New Mexico School for the Arts gallery is located at 500 Montezuma Ave, Santa Fe, NM 87501. This series will run from July 1 – September 16.

Early music in the high desert

We are Severall Friends, a consortium of musicians who gather to play a broad spectrum of early music from Machaut to Rameau. Based in Santa Fe, our mission is to bring compelling performances to the Southwest. We also plan to work with young musicians from local schools and offer workshops for adult amateurs. Mary Springfels and Elizabeth Blumenstock are co-Directors, and Ken Perlow is Treasurer and General Manager.
