Women’s Ensemble to sing in Sister City, Santa Fe de la Vega, Granada, Spain

The Santa Fe Women’s Ensemble a 13-voice group founded in 1981 will be representing Santa Fe on a singing tour of Spain, September 4 - 17. In addition to singing in Madrid, Seville and Barcelona, they will perform in Granada. The beautiful music was specially chosen by Director Dr. Linda Raney to resonate both with the Spanish audience and in the performance venues.

A highlight of the trip will be representing the City of Santa Fe when the Women’s Ensemble visits Santa Fé de la Vega, Granada, our sister city since 1989. President Eisenhower’s idea of sister cities “promotes peace through mutual respect, understanding and cooperation—one individual, one community at a time.” And the Ensemble hopes to promote peace through music. In Granada, they will sing a joint concert with a local choir during which they will present proclamations of friendship from Mayor David Coss and the City of Santa Fe, as well as gifts to the city officials of Santa Fe de la Vega, Granada.
