Welcome to the 2016-2017 season of the Las Cruces Symphony Orchestra.

I’m delighted to welcome everyone back into the recital hall for our 37th spectacular year. Once again, Lonnie Klein has programmed a diverse repertoire with six dynamic Classics Concert cycles featuring guest solo artists from around the world, with a few special surprises. Our Classics One concert will feature a beautiful narration by Richard Rundell of Prokofiev’s “Romeo & Juliet”; Classics Three will be a seasonal delight with Handel’s “Messiah” featuring four visiting guest vocalists accompanied by the NMSU Masterworks Chorus; and Classics Five will feature a surprise visual component you will not want to miss. Our January POPS “The Texas Tenors” concert will entertain with an Emmy Award winning trio performing everything from Bruno Mars to Puccini alongside the orchestra under the baton of Lonnie Klein. These three gentlemen were hugely successful on America’s Got Talent, are selling out venues across the country, and will perform for us for two shows only, so get your tickets early! And finally, back by overwhelming popular demand is our POPS Under the Stars concert in September. This concert will thrill audiences of all ages with patriotic music, including a salute to our veterans, Broadway tunes, popular Hollywood television and movie themes, culminating with a spectacular FIREWORKS display set to Tchaikovsky’s “1812 Overture”.
