About The Chorus

Experience exciting repertoire from the Renaissance to the 21st century, under the direction of Choral Director Carmen Flórez-Mansi and Principal Conductor Guillermo Figueroa. Our 70+ member Symphony Chorus presents professional-quality orchestral and choral concerts, as well as education and outreach programs for adults and school children. Performing a regular subscription series at the 790-seat Lensic, Santa Fe’s Performing Arts Center, The Santa Fe Symphony Orchestra & Chorus is a community-focused musical organization. It is one of two fully professional, full-sized symphony orchestras in the state of New Mexico and is the largest professional symphonic organization in Santa Fe with a full volunteer chorus.

Lift your voice and sing!

Membership in The Symphony Chorus is voluntary. The Symphony Chorus is committed to polished, well-rehearsed performances meeting the very highest of professional standards. The cost of sheet music, vocal workshops, and study aids is defrayed by annual dues assessed each member and payable to the treasurer at the first rehearsal. The Symphony pays the salaries of the Choral Director and a rehearsal pianist. The Choral Director holds auditions annually for all singers and has the final word about the participation of any chorister. All members are expected to re-audition every year to remain in the choir. For more information and to sign up for auditions, click here.

A communication tool for current singers, accompanists, directors and supporters, these pages comprise the Rules of Operation, and current season schedule, which include information on scores, allowed absences, and rehearsal recordings. Each season we will also provide a member roster directory containing contact information for the Choral Director, Chorus Council members, and our rehearsal pianist, as well as a list of all current choristers.
