'The mission of the New Mexico Performing Arts Society (NMPAS) is to foster the work of New Mexico-based professional musicians and artists.'

New Mexico Performing Arts Society presents musical and other performances by local artists who represent the highest international standards. In a time of limited resources, New Mexico Performing Arts Society believes that the cost of producing live performances can be reduced by collaborating with world-class artists who have made New Mexico their home.

NMPAS currently presents The Chapel Series at Immaculate Heart, The New Mexico Bach Society, and Santa Fe Flute Immersion, an international flute and performance skills masterclass with outstanding teachers and innovative workshops, in the relaxed setting of the Immaculate Heart Retreat Center (www.ihmretreat.com).

The educational component of NMPAS is a priority for the organization. The Chapel Series has collaborated with the New Mexico School for the Arts, and NMPAS will continue offer reduced ticket prices to parents who bring their children to our performances. Santa Fe Flute Immersion also offers discounted rates to New Mexico high-school and college students.


Many outstanding musicians and artists are moving to New Mexico each year, bringing decades of international experience with them. They value the rich cultural heritage and natural beauty that our state is known for, as well as its long tradition of nurturing the arts. NMPAS intends to engage the very best New Mexico-based artists.
