Guild - Las Cruces Symphony Orchestra
View The Las Cruces Symphony’s COVID-19 Message

Just as many businesses and organizations have been profoundly affected by the COVID-19 Pandemic, so has the Las Cruces Symphony. We have cancelled live performances through the end of 2020 and hope to return in February of 2021. To be notified of updated performance information, sign up for email notifications.

Without the ability to perform for the public, we are unable to generate essential operating revenue. Until we have certainty that our economy can remain open and audiences are ready and able to return to large public gatherings, we are not able to resume concerts. You can support LCSO by taking part in our virtual performance and fundraiser on November 19 at 7 p.m. Mountain Standard Time.

Our best wishes go out to our patrons, sponsors, and supporters.

THE GUILD OF THE LAS CRUCES SYMPHONY ASSOCIATION

The Guild of the Las Cruces Symphony Association was established in 1981 as an affiliate organization of the LCSA. Through the years, the Las Cruces Symphony Guild has assisted with programs to enhance the orchestra’s educational outreach.

These include “student rush” ticket sales allowing all area students, ages 7 and up, the opportunity to attend a Classics concert for $10; admitting NMSU music majors to the Sunday Classics concerts free of charge; stipends for NMSU student musicians; and Lonnie’s Spotlight Luncheons, which offer insight into the upcoming Classics concert. We welcome and encourage your participation in our endeavors. Please call 575-646-3709 for membership information.

LONNIE’S SPOTLIGHT LUNCHEONS
Lonnie’s Spotlight Luncheons offer insight into the upcoming Classics concert and are hosted by the Las Cruces Symphony Association’s Guild. Spend a delightful lunch with our music director and conductor the Thursday before a concert and learn the story behind the music. Become a member of the guild and get a reduced rate for these lunches while supporting the guild’s other programs. Please call Guild Chairperson Mernie Burden at 575-646-3709 for membership information. Luncheons are at 11:30 a.m. on Thursdays the week of the concert. Dr. Klein’s presentation begins at noon.
