The Santa Fe Desert Chorale in partnership with Caminos del Inka instrumentalists flutist Jake Fridkis, who holds a Master of Music degree from Yale University, and Adriana Voirin DeCosta who studied at the Conservatorio Nacional de Musica in her native Buenos Aires and received her Bachelor of Music (Performance and Education) from SMU, summa cum laude, will lead the two interactive “instrument petting zoo” sessions at the New Mexico History Museum.
Families will be taught about the history and evolution of flutes and percussion instruments and their role as communication tools. The participants will have the opportunity to play the indigenous instruments under the instruction and supervision of these two established musicians.
Children will take home replicas of the flutes to continue their study. This youth program relates directly to the Santa Fe Desert Chorale’s concert program, The New World: Journey from the Inca Trail which is a collaboration with Caminos del Inka.
