When Yo-Yo Ma calls a dance troupe “the preeminent modern dance ensemble of our time,” it’s a good idea to sit up and take notice. The New York-based Mark Morris Dance Group and Music Ensemble fuse brilliantly creative choreography from the vocabularies of modern dance and classical ballet with polished, precise, expressive dancing and accompanying musical masterpieces. The resulting works are eye-opening, stage-filling wonders that make it difficult to remember how the music ever existed without this choreography. Tickets are…

Performance Santa Fe presents a night of swing and soul, straight from the heart of New Orleans. Delfeayo Marsalis, the trombone-playing member of the Marsalis family, started assembling a best-of-the-best jazz orchestra 10 years ago. Although the group began with the intent of keeping jazz traditions alive in the schools of New Orleans, Delfeayo and the Uptown Jazz Orchestra have won a far wider audience than their target. Their sound is decidedly modern but firmly rooted in rich jazz history.…

Their sound and tunes transcend time, place, and ethnicity, drawing listeners home to a place many have never been. Tickets are available online or…
