Sunshine, Great Tunes, and Great Company

Santa Fe has perfect weather for outdoor activities most of the year but Spring and Summer are especially nice. Sunshine, relatively forgiving high temperatures, and long days make for great hiking, biking, picnicking, and sunset watching (sunset watching is great year round!).

One of my favorite summer traditions on our campus is the Music on the Hill concert series. On eight Wednesday evenings throughout the summer, the College welcomes our community to campus for a free concert. The concerts run from around 6 to 8, and there’s usually at least one encore!

Each year, the College works to bring in a great mix of local artists (Santa Fe boasts an abundance of local musical talent) and acts from out of town, as well as a blend of genres and musical styles. The first two concerts this summer featured Christine Fawson, Jazz-singing California transplant to the New Mexico music scene, and well loved Santa Fe performer and record producer Jono Manson, whose band plays a blend of rock, blues, and R&B. Upcoming concerts will feature one of Cuba’s leading flutists, a “rock-n’-soul” singer-songwriter, a Mardi Gras band from New Orleans, a Latin band that has twice won the John Lennon songwriting competition.

Did I mention it’s free?

If you’re in the Santa Fe area this summer, be sure to take advantage of this great event. And stop by and say hi to us while you’re at it!  Admissions always has a table near the front, and we’d love to chat with you. See you on the hill!
