About Music from Angel Fire
Music from Angel Fire was founded in 1984, its premiere season. It is a private, New Mexico non-profit corporation with Federal tax exemption as a 501-C-3 organization. The Festival operates under the guidance of a Board of Directors, a National Advisory Board, and an outstanding administrative and artistic staff. Many volunteers from throughout Northern New Mexico are organized through the Music from Angel Fire Guild and participate annually with the Festival in housing, marketing and social benefits.
