Lisa Law and her hippie bus, “Silver,” always attract a big following to celebrate Fiestas.


THIS IS A WEEKEND for spectacular color. The changing colors in the mountains, and even in town, are starting to show. After this wet year, these colors are even richer and more vivid. If you haven’t yet made the trip into the Sangre de Cristo mountains to look at the aspen trees, this would be the perfect time to go up and enjoy them. Another dose of brilliant color will be on display at the International Balloon Fiesta in Albuquerque. Yes, it’s a famously early morning event, but that morning sky is what makes it so spectacular. Seeing mushrooming mounds of color take shape as the balloons inflate in the dawn light is what makes this one of the world’s most photographed events. The glow of color from within the balloons creates an effect that is just plain thrilling.  Color is all around us—in the sky, in the trees, and in one very special house. This final dose of color is at the Santa Fe ShowHouse, in which Santa Fe designers take on the challenge of re-envisioning each of the rooms in the Frank Applegate Estate. You’ll see how each designer interpreted the 2015 theme of “Lux New Mex.” The challenge speaks to our New Mexico roots and how modern, luxurious design can respect and maintain those traditions. Prepare to see lots of color, creativity, passion, and effort at ShowHouse 2015. You can read all about in this special issue of NOW, with the ShowHouse program included on page 13. As we locals know, this is another one of the great weekends to be in Santa Fe. Colorful eye candy is all around for us to enjoy. Enjoy we will.

Collectible Box Auction for Kitchen Angels There’s nothing ordinary about the boxes in Kitchen Angels’ Collectible Box Auction. These small, custom– made square and rectangular storage containers made from wood, glass, ceramic, bronze, paper, and metal are intricate works of art created by current and former New Mexico artists. Among the more than 100 boxes in the October 2 silent auction is Janet O’Neal’s wood box Moon Child, featuring imagery of eyes and stars. Also on the auction block are four slate boxes by Leah Stravinsky that have cast glass heads on top and a scroll inside containing a poem by a Santa Fe poet laureate. Floyd Lucero’s black wood box with two burro figures on top comes with a surprise—a carved bird inside. “We hope to raise $35,000 from the auction,” says executive director Tony McCarty. “The money will go toward our meal delivery program, which benefits 178 people daily.” —Emily Van Cleve

Flamboyant color and spectacle are part of the excitment, with 550 balloons over nine days.

Balloon Fiesta Park will host dozens of events throughout the week for spectators, including early morning laser shows, live music, and the Fiesta of Wheels car exhibition Sunday, October 4. Don’t miss the spectacular Flight of the Nations the morning of Wednesday, October 7, when pilots from every represented nation take to the dawn air en masse; or the Special Shapes Rodeo on Thursday, October 8, showcasing the nearly 100 custom-shaped balloons at the Fiesta. —Dylan Syverson 44th Annual Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta, October 3–11, general admission $8, special event ticket prices and times vary Balloon Fiesta Park, 5000 Balloon Fiesta Pkwy NE, Albuquerque 4

Colorful desserts are a big part of the menu for every Farmer’s Market Fall Fiesta feast

Fall Fiesta for Santa Fe Farmers’ Market Institute Locally-sourced food is celebrated during Fall Fiesta, an annual fundraising dinner with live and silent auctions held on October 3 by the Santa Fe Farmers’ Market Institute. This gourmet feast, prepared by area chefs including Martín Rios of Restaurant Martín, Joseph Wrede of Joseph’s Culinary Pub, Chef Nou Kimnath of Sweetwater Harvest Kitchen, and David Mora of Boxcar Bar and Grill, uses fresh meats, veggies, and fruits grown by northern New Mexico farmers. The menu features beet croquettes, Thai-Cambodian red chicken curry, grilled eggplant rollatini, and other delectable dishes. Proceeds from the event become part of the institute’s general operating budget to support a wide range of initiatives such as educational programs for children and the EBT Double Up Food Bucks program, which provides financial assistance for food stamp recipients. “Two family foundations will match up to $10,000 raised at Fall Fiesta for our training and professional development program that offers educational workshops to farmers,” says executive director Kierstan Pickens.—Emily Van Cleve

Matt Yohalem of Il Piatto, a longtime supporter of the Farmers’ Market Institute, has contributed two packages for this year’s live auction. .

Farmers Market Fall Fiesta, October 3, 6–9 pm, $135, $130 for members, Santa Fe Farmers Market Pavilion, 1607 Paseo de Peralta,

Fall is the season for roaming the changing New Mexico countryside, visiting cozy art galleries, and taking studio tours. Over the weekends of October 3–4 and October 10–11, during the Madrid and Cerrillos Studio Tour, 28 artists in 20 different studios will open their workspaces to the public along the famed Turquoise Trail. Visitors on Saturday, October 3, and on Sunday morning (before 1 pm), October 4, will be able to bid on artwork in each studio as part of a new fundraiser that benefits The Madrid Cultural Projects and supports future tours. A list of artists and a preview of items available for the studio auction are available on the organization’s website, along with a map and schedules. Also on October 3-4, 34 artists in the town of El Rito, north of Santa Fe on Highway 554 (between Ojo Caliente and Abiquiu), will invite the public to visit and observe art demonstrations in their studios. Artwork included in all three towns’ studio tours includes a wide range of media—from jewelry and leatherwork, to painting and photography, to sculpture and pottery. —Anne Maclachlan Madrid and Cerrillos Studio Tour, October 3–4 and October 10–11, 10 am–5 pm, free, Madrid and Cerrillos, 505-469-7767,, El Rito Studio Tours, October 3–4, varying times,

David Naylor and Jennifer Ashton Founders and co-chairs, ShowHouse Santa Fe 2015


The Frank Applegate Estate: This Year’s ShowHouse

The theme of this year’s ShowHouse is “Reinventing Western Classics.” It’s perfect; because this year’s ShowHouse is not only a Western classic, it’s a Western classic that’s been reinvented several times since being built in the late 1700s. Located at 831 El Caminito and still known as the Frank Applegate Estate, it’s an original adobe that was built as an 18th-century fortress. It was purchased for $114 in 1845 by Sergeant Francisco de la Peña, a soldier of the Mexican Army who had fought at the Battle of the Alamo, and who was the first to reinvent the property, Enter Frank Applegate. Born in Illinois in 1881, he was an artist his entire life, starting out as a ceramist before becoming a painter. In the 1920s, while studying and teaching in the U.S. and in Europe, he met Picasso, Cezanne, and Matisse. A bit of a serial remodeler who regarded homes as “livable sculptures,” Applegate, who had thrown himself into Native and Colonial Hispanic arts and who quickly became a seminal player in developing and establishing the town’s historic conservation movement, soon turned his preservationist’s eye to the property on El Caminito. Gallery owner Gerald Peters and his wife Katie purchased the Applegate Estate in the mid-1980s. Cut from the same cloth as Applegate, the couple, who would fill the house with their four children, had already renovated five other adobes together. Yet, like its previous owner, they were determined to retain the history of the estate. Today, this tree-lined compound of six bedrooms and seven bathrooms, presented by Deborah Bodelson and Cary Spier of Santa Fe Properties, exemplifies everything that makes for a classic Western home: adobe, historic, and always more than ready to accommodate the new, the interesting, and the unexpected. It’s the perfect showcase for the 2015 theme. This year, ShowHouse Santa Fe features 29 local designers, each taking a room of the Applegate Estate and furnishing it according to the “Reinventing Western Classics” guidelines, with leather, denim, and suede. We are proud to announce our 2015 Real Estate Diamond Sponsor, Santa Fe Properties, founded in the Fall of 1986 by Edward W. “Wally” Sargent, and managed today by Liz Cale, President and Qualifying Broker. They are proud to be fourth-generation Santa Feans and have deep roots in the Santa Fe community. Serving Santa Fe also as a teacher, Wally knows the importance of the role schools and teachers have and invites you to join us in supporting the Dollars4Schools benefit. Santa Fe Properties has over 30 years experience in real estate brokerage and development, is Santa Fe’s leading independent real estate firm and has been voted #1 Best Real Estate Firm in Santa Fe since 2006. Santa Fe Properties is affiliated with nationally and internationally top-ranked Luxury Portfolio International. The listing brokers for the Applegate Estate are Deborah Bodelson and Cary Spier. Known as the Bodelson Spier Team, they have a total combined experience of over 30 years and are ranked as one of the top-producing teams in Santa Fe. This is a property with rich history and stories to tell. We invite you to meet us at the Estate, where history meets contemporary. The big reveal begins on Friday, October 2 at the Fiesta Preview Gala at 6 pm.

Proceeds from ShowHouse Santa Fe 2015 go to programs at Dollars 4 Schools: Proceeds from ShowHouse Santa Fe 2015 benefit children’s programs via, a nonprofit organization that funds activities, materials, and innovative programs for Santa Fe–area schools.

The historic Frank Applegate Estate is getting a "Lux New Mex" makeover for ShowHouse Santa Fe 2015.

Lux New Mex by A n n e Mac lac hla n

turning a historic Eastside home into the 2015 ShowHouse Santa Fe TWENTY-NINE TOP SANTA FE interior designers have come together to create the highly anticipated ShowHouse Santa Fe, making an extraordinary collaborative donation of their talents and resources as they update a historic Eastside estate in creative New Mexico styles. Individuals and teams have each redesigned an indoor or an outdoor space in the gorgeous Frank Applegate Estate, a late-18th-century adobe presented by the real estate team of Bodelson Spier. This year’s home “is not [simply] Santa Fe ‘style,’” says designer Jennifer Ashton of Jennifer Ashton Interiors about the ShowHouse choice for 2015. “With its history—so authentic to our region—it’s a Santa Fe original. We hadn’t yet done a project with such old bones.” Noting the world-famous “Santa Fe appeal,” she adds that the focus this year is to honor that concept without being cliché. The Frank Applegate Estate was perfect for this concept. With a fascinating history that includes its origins as a Spanish fortress, the six-bedroom home’s new look for 2015 will reflect this year’s theme of Lux New Mex by incorporating classic elements into new approaches. Ashton, who will be designing the living room along with her ShowHouse event cofounder David Naylor, explains the influence of fashion on this year’s design theme. “Last year it was metallic; this year it’s a return to leather, denim and suede,” she says, “and the challenge for the designers will be how to reinvent it.” The results of the transformations will be revealed on Friday, October 2, at a gala event (tickets for both the gala and the public tours are available online at The public may view the designers’ creations on Saturday, October 3, and Saturday, October 10, from 11 am to 6 pm; as well as Sunday, October 4, and Sunday, October 11, from 11 am to 4 pm. ShowHouse Santa Fe doubles as a fundraiser that

transforms not only living spaces but lives, as proceeds will once again benefit Last year, more than 20 classroom projects were funded in literature, mathematics, special education, science, and the arts; and 50 children were assisted with warm winter clothing and other basic needs—all by monies raised from ShowHouse tickets and donations. All in all, approximately 2,000 schoolchildren were affected through improvements in school programs or other donations. ShowHouse Santa Fe 2015 anticipates having an even larger impact on these programs, and being able to affect the lives of many more area schoolchildren. ShowHouse Santa Fe, Saturday, October 3, and Saturday, October 10, 11 am—6 pm; Sunday, October 4, and Sunday, October 11, 11 am—4 pm; $25.

ShowHouse 2015 Participating Designers A FUNDRAISING project that works to improve the quality of our children’s education, ShowHouse Santa Fe also gives local designers the opportunity to come together to share the challenges and camaraderie of their profession. By pooling their talents to create the ShowHouse, this inspiring group helps our schools and creates lasting beauty that benefits not just their clients but also the city at large.

The Living Room


Interiors inspired by art are the specialty of interior designer and Allied ASID member Jennifer Ashton of Santa Fe’s Jennifer Ashton Interiors. Ashton designs with artistic sensitivity for both residential and retail spaces using a sense of drama, a fresh eye, and unique combinations of traditional and contemporary elements., 505-913-0104

A Guest Bedroom Jeff Fenton, Chris Martinez, and Kendra Henning are owners and managing partners at Reside Home, where the philosophy is that good design should be accessible, the process fun, and the result unique and individual. Calling this room “Trophies and Traditions,” they note that “New Mexico has a rich history forged by indigenous cultures and pioneers whose trophies and traditions have influenced regional design trends.”, 505-780-5658

The Outdoors

Catherine Clemens, landscape architect and principal of Clemens & Associates, Inc., began her career 30 years ago as a stonemason while pursuing her fine arts degree. Her love of design and creative problemsolving is reflected in her striking gardens, which incorporate strong architectural elements and unique finish details into comfortable outdoor living spaces., 505-982-4005

French & French Interiors began A Guest Bedroom their journey by remodeling houses. What sets them apart is the combination of skills they present. Matt French is the master of materials and processes. Heather French is the orchestrator, the mix of soft and hard—the flow. They seek authenticity in materials that bring meaning to a space. In this room, “We reflect the culture of Santa Fe through the combination of contemporary design with traditional craftsmanship.”, 941-258-8592

The Dining Room

Pam Duncan, Gloria Devan and Buffy Kline of Wiseman & Gale & Duncan Interiors: “The dining room was part of the original house built in the late 1700s and deserves the utmost respect in regard to the design. We have decided to give a nod to the rustic bones of the space while adding a touch of glamour and sparkle. Leather, damask, antique silver, rustic woods, and flickering candlelight complete our look.”, 505-984-8544

The Maid’s Quarters Leslie Hall of Leslie Hall Art & Design says, “I chose the maid’s quarters of this historic house to honor all those who take care of the most intimate part of our lives —home. I honor their hard work, loyalty, and care with beauty, solace, and comfort. Featuring textiles and art, old and new, from Old and New Mexico...and other trading posts near and far.”

The Sitting Room Karen Lankford of Box to Beautiful says, “The West has always drawn souls to its open spaces, beautiful sunrises, stunning sunsets, and amazing blend of cultures. It is what brought Frank Applegate to Santa Fe from Chicago in 1921. The sitting room is the place to explore a book collection, disappear into a painting, be mesmerized by a fire, or breathe in the garden air.”, 505-670-9885 A Guest Bedroom Kim McIntosh of ACC Santa Fe says, “I tend to think outside the box and find inspiration from the great designers who have come before me. I hope to bring a fresh perspective incorporating a light neutral, clean palette with rough wood and leather, denim and suede accents in unexpected ways. I plan to highlight local artists and create my own custom designs for some of the furnishings and lighting.”, 505-984-0955

Moving Arts Española provides dance classes to 250 children each week.

struggling patients and their families to stay in town during cancer treatment [by providing] grocery cards, gas cards, and motel rooms.” Big Brothers Big Sisters Mountain Region is the recipient of the Tried and True Award, while the Santa Fe Watershed Association is being honored with the Courageous Innovation Award. Elizabeth and Richard Schnieders are receiving the Philanthropic Leadership Award. Santa Fe Community Foundation Piñon Awards, October 6, 6 pm, $50, La Fonda on the Plaza, 100 E San Francisco,


HONORING THE WORK OF NONPROFIT organizations and local philanthropists is a tradition for the Santa Fe Community Foundation (SFCF), which was founded in 1981 to “provide an avenue for donors to satisfy their charitable intents and for nonprofit organizations to receive funding that will enable them to carry out their essential work.” The annual SFCF Piñon Awards ceremony, to be held on October 6 at La Fonda on the Plaza, celebrates four organizations and one philanthropist who make a difference in our community. Moving Arts Española receives the Visionary Award. “For me, Moving Arts Española is doing the critical work of investing in some of the most challenged youth from the Española Valley through their inspiring and creative dance and fine arts programming,” says Christa Coggins, SFCF’s vice president for community philanthropy. Serving children between the ages of 3 and 13 as well as a handful of adults, Moving Arts Española’s staff of 18 artists and educators offers classes in flamenco, gymnastics, music, circus arts, drama, Mexican folk dance, ballet, hip-hop, and visual arts to 250 children a week at their 13,000 square foot facility at Ohkay Owingeh Pueblo. “It’s beautiful to see kids come in shy and become transformed as they work with us,” says artistic director Roger Montoya. “You see how they start to feel at home and view the arts as something important in their lives.” The Quiet Inspiration Award goes to the Cancer Foundation of New Mexico. “Few people are aware of the critical services they provide,” says Coggins. “They make it possible for

Paint–Out at Ski Santa Fe capturing the fall scene on canvas by Em ily Va n Cle ve

PAINT–OUT AT SKI SANTA FE on October 3 is an event that Beals & Co. art gallery owner Bobby Beals hopes is the first of many to come. “This is something I’ve wanted to create for a long time,” he says. In collaboration with Ski Santa Fe, which is hosting fall music and activities programs from October 3-12, Beals & Co. has invited more than three dozen plein air artists to bring their easels to the ski basin and paint the spectacular fall foliage and mountain scenery. While artists paint the fall foliage, Ski Santa Fe Sports Shop has a big sale; the Kitty Jo Creek Band plays bluegrass music from noon to 3 pm; Ski Santa Fe hosts activities for kids and adults; and the Santa Fe Brewing Company is sponsoring a beer garden. Some of the artists, including Tim Kenney, Bernard Marks, Lelija Roy, and Marsha Clements, are represented by Beals. “To find more artists, I walked up and down Canyon Road asking galleries if their artists wanted to participate,” says Beals. “I also found some artists through Instagram and friends of friends. In future paint–outs, I’d like to invite artists from throughout the Southwest.” Easels will be set up in the area between the ticket office and the chair lift. Works completed by artists represented by Beals & Co. will be posted online and available to purchase. “In the future, I could see the paint–out culminating in a show or maybe an auction,” Beals adds.

Rio Chama Steakhouse Although “steakhouse” is part of the restaurant’s name, Rio Chama Steakhouse offers much more than just beef. For example, some version of the wild salmon seen here is consistently on the menu, complemented by a variety of seasonal vegetables. The seared fish, simply salted and peppered, sits atop a classic Italian crusty bread panzanella salad, fried heirloom tomatoes, and an arugula watercress mix dressed with basil vinaigrette. “Fried heirloom tomatoes are a little sweeter than the fried green tomatoes that we also serve as a side,” says Chef Tony Blankenship. “This dish combines the cold salad with the warm tomatoes and the hot salmon for a nice mix of flavors and temperatures.” The chef, who is an avid mountain biker when he’s not in the kitchen, changes the menu seasonally to keep fresh produce on patrons’ plates. “Rio Chama has a reputation as a steakhouse, but we want you to come for dishes like the salmon, too,” he adds. “You can enjoy it and not need a nap when you leave.”—Cristina Olds 414 Old Santa Fe Trl, October 1, 2015 NOW 35

Merete Larsen, Turned Vessel, sycamore polished with shellac, 8 x 7"

This show brings together two master European woodworkers, Merete Larsen and Liam Flynn, as part of Patina Gallery’s Year of Color series of exhibitions. Each artist is represented in museum collections across the globe, including the Danish Royal Collection and the Victoria and Albert Museum London. Danish artist Merete Larsen began working with wood as a cabinetmaker and restorer of antiques, and is now creating turned and colored vessels—most often crafted from ash or beech—that are so refined and thin they are translucent. Self-taught Irish artist Liam Flynn works mostly with oak, lathe-turning his vessels while the wood is still green, then ebonizing each piece with iron pigment—a process which brings out the natural grain and texture of the wood.—Carolyn Patten Merete Larsen and Liam Flynn: Turning Colors, Patina Gallery 131 W Palace, patina-gallery.comOctober 2–25, reception October 2, 5–7pm

American modernism: still fresh and radical two mu se ums ho st t h r ee exhibitions for c e nt e nnial c ele brat ion by Ca rolyn Patte n The exhibition schedule is as follows: From New York to New Mexico: Masterworks of American Modernism from The Vilcek Foundation Collection at the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum, September 25, 2015—January 10, 2016; O’Keefe in Process at the New Mexico Museum of Art, September 11, 2015–January 17, 2016; An American Modernism:Painting and Photography at the New Mexico Museum of Art October 2, 2015—February 21, 2016. Ticket information:

MORE THAN ONE HUNDRED years ago, Georgia O’Keeffe (18871986) and her husband Alfred Stieglitz (1864-1946) were at the leading edge of a major change in American art, producing images considered radical at the time, and supporting other artists in the new art movement called American modernism. The artists turned away from a tradition of making naturalistic, realistic images that would tell a straightforward story or mimic nature. Instead, they began using line, shape and color to convey elemental emotions and experiences. With uniquely American themes and locations, such as the skylines of New York City and the vast landscapes of New Mexico, they created abstract art often characterized by its exuberant color and strong geometrics. From New York to New Mexico: Masterworks of American Modernism from The Vilcek Foundation Collection at the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum “features the finest works from one of the country’s greatest collections of American modernism,” according to Curatorial Director Cody Hartley. Included are masterpieces by some of the most influential artists in the American modernism movement— Georgia O’Keeffe herself, Marsden Hartley, Stuart Davis, and more than a dozen others. In two separate but companion exhibitions, the New Mexico Museum of Art is celebrating both O’Keeffe and American modernism, and the two museums are offering joint ticketing. “This is an amazing collaboration and gives art lovers the best of both worlds,” Hartley says. “The distance between our front doors is shorter than the distance from the front door of the Met to its American Gallery and visitors can stroll back and forth between each museum.”

Jami Tobey, They Wrote Forever into the Tree, acrylic on canvas, 20 x 20"

Jami Tobey

by Eve Tolpa

t h e a r t of nat u ra l color

GROWING UP IN A FAMILY of artists set a very particular tone for Jami Tobey’s young life—and it set the course for her career. As the daughter of sculptors Rebecca Tobey and the late Gene Tobey, she had opportunities “to meet so many artists and sample so much work,” she says. “It was inspiring.” A painter from middle school onwards, Tobey has always taken great pleasure in “the process, the planning and the bringing together of all the elements.” She characterizes her style as mixed media; after laying acrylic paint on canvas, she goes back and draws into the images. As much as she loves “the precision of drawing,” it is, she says, color that creates “the mood and tone for the painting. I like to use healing colors like blues and oranges, and I hope to create soothing pieces.” Born in Oregon, Tobey was raised in Santa Fe, where she still lives and works, reveling in the “skies and clouds and deep shadows and bright mornings.” Her rhythmic high desert landscapes seem to glow, and this quality, she says, is entirely intentional. “The paintings are meant to reflect the idea of stained glass,” she says, “and, in truth, they do change all day with the sun and lighting in homes.” Tobey’s vision is constantly stimulated by the everyday. “Sometimes the blue on a sign or logo or door will inspire me to use a certain color blue,” she says, adding, “I really love nature and going for walks and taking pictures and making notes of the things I see.” Though her influences range from Georgia O’Keeffe to Jean-Michel Basquiat, Tobey’s work ethic comes straight from her father. “He was always creating and always creative,” she says. “Being your true creative self is something I hope to pass on to my kids as well.”

Plein air painter Ron Rencher began painting at the age of ten, focusing on the landscapes of the Southwest, particularly Utah and New Mexico. He says he paints rapidly, writing that, “You must catch what’s important quickly and let go of the rest.”—CP

Southwestern Bohemia Literary Haunts of Old Santa Fe

It’s 9:00 on a cool September morning in 1922. The sharpness of the high-altitude sun summons the redness of the mesas as D.H. Lawrence travels to Santa Fe, a small adobe town in the distance enshrouded by mountains. Lawrence would later recall of his first impression, “The moment I saw the brilliant, proud morning sun shine high over the deserts of Santa Fe, something stood still in my soul and I started to attend.” Lawrence stayed in poet Witter Bynner’s house that night. Bynner, a more recognizable name then, had moved to Santa Fe that year. His two-story on Buena Vista, now converted to The Inn of the Turquoise Bear, was the true Gatsby house of the Southwest. It became legendary for wild parties and for writer-patrons like Aldous Huxley and Willa Cather. Bynner once poured beer over guest Robert Frost’s head—a joke he later admitted backfired. Ansel Adams referred to these eccentric gatherings, where Zozobra was born, as “Bynner’s Bashes.” It was at the hotel now known as La Fonda on the Plaza, with its charming restaurant bar, where Bynner befriended Adams, and Cather found the inspiration for Death Comes for the Archbishop. After dinner, Brynner and Lawrence could make the short stroll across the plaza to the Palace of the Governors, where Lew Wallace finished his 1880 novel Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ, one of the best selling novels of the 19th century. Then, it was an easy walk down to the WHERE TO GO temptations of Burro Alley, the era’s red-light district, or in the other direction, to fellow poet Check out Nicholas Potter’s bookstore at his new location on 227 East Palace, Suite M, Alice Corbin Henderson’s home off Camino del downtown.

Santa Fe Opera Apprentice Program


The highly competitive Santa Fe Opera Apprentice Program brings some of the world’s most talented and hardworking young opera singers and technicians to town each summer. The 2015 vocalist apprentices came from 18 states, Canada, and Lebanon, and they hit the stage running, with intensive training, coaching, master classes, and coveted auditions for opera companies and professional managers. Throughout the summer they appeared in supporting roles in scheduled operas, all in preparation for two nights of fully staged scenes in front of regular audiences. These performances served a dual purpose­—to showcase what they’ve learned and to audition for more than 30 musical organizations and companies. On each night, they might be singing in front of representatives from the Metropolitan, Washington National, Chicago Lyric, San Francisco, New York City, or Houston Grand operas. Applications for 2016 apprenticeships closed in September and hopefuls will be auditioning live this month in Albuquerque, Los Angeles, New York City, and Chicago. Winners will take their places at Santa Fe Opera in next summer’s season, May 30–August 27.—Carolyn Patten
