Join KTEP Sunday afternoon at 2pm for the Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival.  With the concert cancellations in 2020 due to Covid-19, the 2021-22 syndication series features gems from the Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival archives.  This provides the opportunity to look ahead to the Festival’s upcoming 50th anniversary by celebrating great performances of the past, and to honor three extraordinary musicians we lost in 2020: pianists Peter Serkin and Leon Fleisher, and cellist Lynn Harrell.  This series runs for 13 weeks on KTEP until the end of November.
