Some of our Great Past Events

Annual Opera Education Lecture and Dinner
Members and friends of EVOG enjoyed an unforgettable evening celebrating Puccini's La Fanciulla del West. Tom Franks, an extraordinarily entertaining speaker and local opera expert, was our guest lecturer. We enjoyed a delicious dinner at Rancho de Chimayo and can't wait to see La Fanciulla del West during the 2016 Festival season!

Our Annual Winter Posole Party
This year's party was held on Saturday, January 16th at Española's beautiful "Anthony's at the Delta" from 1 to 4pm. Guild members and guests were provided with a variety of different homemade posoles, enchiladas and desserts as well as special home-grown musical entertainment. "The Spirit Singers" of Pojoaque Valley Intermediate School performed for us; we welcomed them and their families. Tickets were $12 for adults and $6 for children under 12 and were purchased at the door. Raffle prizes featured the work of Northern New Mexico artists. This was a great way to shake off the winter blues.
