Our Season 2014-15

Beautiful Music in a Timeless Setting

Complementing the fine musicians who play for the Music in Corrales concert series is the extraordinary venue of the Historic Old San Ysidro Church. Artists have said that they particularly enjoy the wonderful acoustics of the church and the intimate 175-seat limit that allows personal interaction with the audience.

The Old San Ysidro Church epitomizes the independent nature of the people of Corrales. In 1868 severe flooding of the Rio Grande destroyed the original colonial chapel erected near the river prior to 1750. The church was rebuilt in its current location in 1869-70 by parish members who salvaged and scraped old timbers reclaimed from the ruins of that flood.

The Old San Ysidro Church is located at 966 Old Church Road, Corrales, NM
