Camerata del Sol is an innovative group of top-notch musicians from Las Cruces, El Paso and Ciudad Juárez that seeks to bring unique chamber music experiences to the region. Founded by NMSU professor and Latin Grammy award winning violinist Daniel Vega-Albela, Camerata was conceived to explore the string ensemble repertoire that full symphonies seldom perform due to the large nature of those orchestras. Camerata is a 15-piece, conductor less ensemble.

Camerata del Sol’s mission is to fill an important gap in the musical scene of the tristate borderlands area by performing rarely-heard chamber music works. Our flexible ensemble ranges in size from small chamber groups like duos, trios, quartets, to large chamber ensembles such as the string orchestra and sinfonietta. In addition to our role as a professional ensemble, the Camerata also serves as a training ensemble for exceptional students at New Mexico State University and the University of Texas at El Paso. As firm believers in arts advocacy, we play outreach concerts and perform side-by-side concerts with the public school orchestra programs in El Paso and Las Cruces. In Fall of 2021, we started a free afterschool music program at University Hills Elementary, a Title I school in Las Cruces. In addition, we bring top-notch soloists from all over the world, of different educational backgrounds, to teach masterclasses and engage with our community. With the understanding that music and art have the power to transcend figurative and literal borders, we will always ensure that our concerts and masterclasses are available and accessible to community members of diverse backgrounds and ages.

Listen to music: Baroque players, Sibelius Romance and Mendelssohn String Quartet.
