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”.
The symphony continues to thrive thanks to the generosity of our patrons, donors, advertisers and volunteers. Because of your support we are able to continue to offer a quality of music not often found in a community the size of Las Cruces. We are fortunate to have such a talented orchestra and conductor performing outstanding classical music for the citizens of southern New Mexico, and we are truly grateful for the opportunity to enthrall music enthusiasts of all ages. Enjoy the season!
The Las Cruces Symphony Association (LCSA) is a non-profit, 501(c)(3), organization that strives to promote public interest and support for orchestral music in Southern New Mexico. The Association’s volunteer Board of Directors is comprised of local community leaders with a love for symphonic music. The LCSA’s main purpose is generating financial support for the Orchestra through annual fundraisers, the promotion of season ticket sales, and donations from individual and corporate contributors. The LCSA provides scholarships for talented New Mexico State University music students, giving these students the opportunity to play in the Orchestra alongside professional musicians from the area and around the world.
The Mission of the LCSA is to present and promote music of the highest artistic quality for the region’s enrichment and serve our community as a musical, cultural and educational resource.
