Music on the Hill
Music on the Hill, a Santa Fe summer tradition!
This 2020 season, we find ourselves in the unfortunate yet necessary position to break from our Music on the Hill tradition and postpone until next summer. This decision was made with heavy hearts, but with the confidence that we must do our part to protect our community at large.
We are exploring opportunities for virtual “Music at the Home” performances by our talented musicians so that we can come together as the strong community that we are, despite our distances and differences. Whether from your own backyard, kitchen, or couch, we hope you will find your “Hill” and enjoy the music with us.
To our devoted sponsors and friends, we thank you for lighting the way towards an even stronger 2021 season; to our incredible musicians—we support you and will find a way forward. To our entire Music on the Hill family, please stay safe—see you next summer at St. John’s.
Make a gift to Music on the Hill to support this program bringing free concerts to the Santa Fe community. Your support makes a difference!

Joining lead singer Nohelia Sosa in the band self-described as Latin, Soul with Passion and Attitude are Randy Sanchez, Rafael Herrera, and Justin Bransford. Sanchez elaborates. “There are influences from jazz, cumbia. We kind of lean towards this power trio who’s backing Nohe Sosa. We also like putting twists on the songs. We do a cover of ‘Purple Rain’ in a huapango. We try to think creatively.”Learn more about Nohe & Sus Santos See the Nohe & Sus Santos YouTube Channel
