Summer and fall is a special time at the St. Bernard because we feature exclusively the famous Taos School of Music, the Fechin Artist Workshops, as well as Jillana's Ballet School. While the hotel is not open for accommodations during these non-winter months, we encourage folks to learn about the fantastic programs that take residence at the hotel:
- From mid June to early August, we are proud to host students from the Taos School of Music, a renowned and intensive chamber music program that brings some of the best young talent from around the country and world to the Hotel St. Bernard. The public is invited to join us for our signature gourmet dinners followed by staff and student concerts on the main stage in our dining room. This is a truly magical experience. Dinners and concerts occur every other Thursday and Saturday. Concerts are also open to the public free of charge. We strongly encourage you to make a dinner reservation and experience the beauty of the St. Bernard in the summertime.
- In the month of July, students from Jillana's Ballet School stay at the hotel and train in the Balanchine technique during a month-long summer intensive program.
- Every September to October we host the Fechin Artist Workshops, a program that has brought some of the best painting talent to the hotel. Nationally recognized painters demonstrate their technique and process in addition to participating in individual critiques for students during the intensive workshops held at the hotel. The program offers and exclusive opportunity for exchange between students and outstanding instructors, maximizing artistic growth.
