St. Mark's 2015–2016 Recital Series

Now in its 11th season, the St. Mark's Recital Series is one of Durango's not-to-be-missed musical series. "One of Durango's top-ten musical events" wrote Judith Reynolds in the Durango Telegraph. All recitals are held in the historic sanctuary of St. Mark's Church. Because seating is limited and many recitals have sold out, advanced ticket purchase is recommended.

As our way of saying "thank you," season subscribers receive a 20% discount the night of the recital at Cyprus Cafe, 725 E. 2nd Ave.

enhakē thrilled 3rd Ave. Arts audiences on the 2015 Durango Chamber Music Festival. They return to the St. Mark's Recital Series with a concert that will include Olivier Messiaen's Quartet for the End of Time, recognized as one of the most important pieces of chamber music from the twentieth century. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to hear "a work of transcending beauty with moments of archangel-like severity. An act of faith and a compositional tour-de-force that encompasses medieval modes and Indian rhythmic cycles, birdsong transcriptions and bold orchestrations." —Wall Street Journal
