The Vice-Regency of New Spain was established by the Spanish in the land now called Mexico in the early 1500s, and remained in power there well into the nineteenth century.

Much of what has been written and taught about this epoch has focused on the social and political effects of the conquest and occupation. This week, the Taos Community Chorus (TCC) will be shedding light on how the hybrid of European and Central American cultures resulted in the birth of a unique genre of music.

The Chorus celebrates this genre in its fall concert program, “Mexican Baroque: Exploring Our Past” Saturday and Sunday (Dec. 5-6) and Dec. 12-13 at four different venues in the Taos area.
