Selections from the CD Stepping Westward
 

Las Cantantes

The University of New Mexico's Women's Ensemble - known as Las Cantantes- is a highly select group of 15 women who come from all areas of the Albuquerque campus. Only in its seventh year of existence, the group has already begun to make a name for itself not only within the region, but nationally as well.

Highlights include singing with jazz great Dave Brubeck, performing on the subscription series of the Chamber Orchestra of Albuquerque, and singing for both state and regional conventions of the American Choral Directors Association. The group's first recording, entitled Enchantment at Chimayo, has been heard on National Public Radio (NPR) stations across the country.

For more information on Las Cantantes, please call the University of New Mexico Department of Music at (505) 277-2126 or fax them at (505) 277-0708.
