Santa Fe Pro Musica brings together uniquely expressive soloists and New Mexico’s premiere baroque ensemble to perform our emotionally rich Holy Week concerts in Santa Fe’s historic Loretto Chapel. A tradition not to be missed!
We regret to inform you that guest soloist and oboist Gonzalo X. Ruiz has canceled his Baroque Holy Week engagement with Pro Musica. Acclaimed baroque oboist Stephen Bard graciously stepped in and we are thrilled to feature him in this week’s concerts.

• Avery sings with the Metropolitan Opera, the Glyndebourne Festival, Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra, Spoleto Festival USA, Boston Early Music Festival, Salzburger Festspiele, Seattle Opera, Philharmonia Baroque, Orchestra of St. Luke’s and many other organizations
• “Avery Amereau brought an unusual degree of brooding intensity to her solos, a hint of simmering defiance underpinning the arias” (Star Tribune, Minneapolis)
• She is originally from Jupiter, Florida
• Avery received her Bachelor of Music degree from Mannes College, her Master of Music and Artist Diploma from the Juilliard School where she was a proud recipient of a Kovner Fellowship, and the 2017 Shoshana Foundation Richard F. Gold Career Grant
• Stephen is a core member of Portland Baroque Orchestra (Oregon), and appears regularly with Tafelmusik (Toronto), Philharmonia Baroque (San Francisco), American Bach Soloists (San Francisco), and Handel and Haydn Society (Boston).
• Stephen currently resides on Reed Street (where else should an oboist live?) in South Philadelphia and is on the faculty of the University of Delaware.
• His playing is “especially noteworthy for its sensuous lyricism” (Philadelphia Inquirer) and has been lauded for “long, amber-tinted lines and pertly articulated phrases” (San Francisco Classical Voice).
• Outside of music he is interested in the art of fermentation, making sourdough bread, cooking, eating, and traveling.
