Welcome to the Santa Fe Concert Band

The Santa Fe Concert Band continues one of Santa Fe’s oldest traditions, of free public concerts by volunteer musicians. This tradition dates back to 1865, when Francisco PĂ©rez, after serving as a Confederate Army bugler in the ill-fated invasion of New Mexico by Texas forces during the Civil War, returned to Santa Fe and formed La Banda de Santa Fe. This musical tradition continued under various names and directors, including Los Conquistadores from 1909 through 1940, the latter part of which was under the highly-respected and popular Dan McKenzie. The Santa Fe Concert Band was formally incorporated in 1983 under the directorship of Greg Heltman.
