A Musical Mission

The all-volunteer Corrales Cultural Arts Council (CCAC) created the Music in Corrales series in 1986 as a musical offering to the Corrales community. The series was conceived as a way of preserving New Mexico’s vast musical and cultural heritage, and a way to create a new one as well. What was started by a few dedicated persons who recognized the importance of music to people’s lives, has grown to an organization that brings exceptional musicians to the Historic Old San Ysidro Church where the audience is no longer just neighbors. Local residents and guests from the middle Rio Grande Valley share the evening with visitors from other states and further abroad.

The hope of the CCAC has been that everyone could enjoy a sampling of the world’s finest musical performances in a stunning New Mexican location at affordable prices. Still an all-volunteer group of involved members, we are pleased to see that dream continuing to grow and flourish in such a wonderful way.
