St. Mark's 2016–2017 Recital Series

Now in its 12th season, the St. Mark's Recital Series is one of Durango's not-to-be-missed musical series. "One of Durango's top-ten musical events" wrote Judith Reynolds in the Durango Telegraph. All recitals are held in the historic sanctuary of St. Mark's Church. Because seating is limited and many recitals have sold out, advanced ticket purchase is recommended.

As our way of saying "thank you," season subscribers receive a 20% discount the night of the recital at Cyprus Cafe, 725 E. 2nd Ave.
