TYMS students attend Santa Fe Opera

In late June, TYMS students and their families were invited to attend a performance at the world-renowned Santa Fe Opera. This outstanding opportunity was made possible by the Taos Opera Guild, in collaboration with the Santa Fe Opera to make this experience possible for children in and around Taos. TYMS students were treated to a performance of Don Pasquale, which made for an evening of laughs and beautiful music and performance. Thank you to the Taos Opera Guild for making this possible!

BIG Thank You to Scott Kesson!

BIG Thank You to Scott Kesson!

After ten years of teaching, Scott Kessin is retiring from TYMS. Scott has been an invaluable member of the TYMS family . He brings not only technical and artistic skill to his work, but an uncanny ability to connect with students. Scott has mentored too many TYMS students to name, guiding young people in their musical journey and inspiring them to explore all that making music has to offer.
