Music on the Hill
Music on the Hill, a Santa Fe summer tradition!
A free, family-friendly, summer concert series presented by St. John’s College. Bring your picnic, meet up with friends, and enjoy live music on the hill. Concerts are on Wednesday evenings in June and July from 6 to 8 p.m. at the St. John’s athletic field.
Thank you to all of our sponsors and musicians for our 2020 season. At this time sponsors and musicians are waiting in the wings with the hope that by mid-June, it will be safe to gather together once again.
Of course, as we continue to plan for a summer of concerts, we are also keeping in mind that it may not be safe to do so. Time will tell. At this writing, St. John’s College and the community volunteers that make up the Music on the Hill Advisory Board have agreed to hold off any further decisions until May 1. At that time, our decision will be based on the health and well-being of our Santa Fe community and will follow the recommendations of our government and health leaders.
To our sponsors and friends, while we continue to plan for the concerts, I thank you for your past and continued support. You are great friends of the Santa Fe community making the gift of music possible each summer. Patrons—concertgoers—community of Santa Fe, please do what you can to thank our sponsors and support them when you are able.
Until we reach our logistical deadline in May, please know that we are hopeful and still plan to bring free, family-friendly concerts to the Santa Fe community in 2020!
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!

Considered one of Cuba's leading flute players in jazz and popular music, Magela Herrera will enchant you with tunes infused with Latin Jazz, European jazz, and Afro-Cuban music traditions.
From the funk-laced beats and bass-heavy sousaphone blasts to the gritty warmth of singer J’Wan Boudreaux’s voice, New Orleans brass band-meets-Mardi Gras Indian outfit Cha Wa radiates a fiery energy. Co-presented by St. John’s College and the New Mexico Jazz Festival.
Nosotros is one of the most recognizable Latin bands in the Southwest. This 9-piece, Latin music powerhouse from the Albuquerque/Santa Fe region seamlessly combines Latin rhythms with elements of rock, salsa, jazz, and cumbia, creating an original sound that is unmistakably Nosotros.
