This group is a celebration of Med Flory’s and Buddy Clark’s Grammy-winning Supersax, formed in 1972, which played five-part harmonized arrangements of Charlie “Bird” Parker’s solos. SuperSax New Mexico, founded by drummer Cal Haines, revives this challenging and beautiful music using the original charts. This lineup of New Mexico's first-call saxophonists includes Sam Reid and Dave Anderson, altos; Aaron Lovato and Lee Taylor, tenors; and Glenn Kostur, baritone. The famed Bobby Shew is featured on trumpet, with Bert Dalton on piano, Colin Deuble on bass, and Cal Haines on drums.
FREE Admission. Bring your own blanket or folding chair.
The Music on the Hill™ concert series, sponsored by St. John’s College, is a popular signature Santa Fe Summer event. The ninth season begins on June 11 and continues on Wednesday evenings on the college’s athletic field from 6 to 8 p.m. through July 23. (Note: There is no concert on July 2.)
Parking and Shuttle Information
Due to the overwhelming popularity of Music on the Hill™ , St. John’s College encourages concertgoers to take advantage of the fast, convenient, and free shuttle that runs every 15 minutes from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. between Museum Hill and the athletic field on each Wednesday of the concert series. The City of Santa Fe and Santa Fe Rapid Transit provide this service. If not taking the free shuttle, concertgoers are advised to carpool whenever possible, as limited parking is available on a first come, first served basis. The following locations are available to Music on the Hill concertgoers: Udall and main Museum Hill lots (the latter not available on July 9), Santa Fe Prep main lot, I.H.M Retreat and Conference Center front lot accessed from Camino Cruz Blanca, and Rio Grande School. There is no parking at the Carmelite Monastery and or Atalya Elementary School. A drop-off-only location near the entrance to the athletic field on Camino Cruz Blanca has been designated. There is no Music on the Hill™ parking on Camino Cruz Blanca, Camino San Acacio, Calle Rumolo, Camino Cabra, or Camino Picacho.
Food, water, and sodas may be purchased from Walter Burke Catering, which offers a special menu for Music on the Hill. Concertgoers may also bring their own picnic. No seating is available. For safety reasons, no pets are allowed on the field, bicycles must be parked along the tennis court fence, and children need to be monitored by their parents. In case of inclement weather requiring cancellation of a concert, the St. John’s College switchboard will have updated information.
