Classic Sound, Classic Elegance

Welcome to the Las Cruces Symphony

Present and Promote Music of the Highest Artistic Quality.


Debra Medoff Marks, Executive Director


Welcome to the 2015-2016 season of the Las Cruces Symphony Orchestra. I’m delighted to welcome everyone back into the recital hall for our 36th 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. This season the Orchestra has the pleasure of performing the Mountain Premiere of composer Christopher Theofanidis’ new work entitled, Dream Ancestors, during our Classics Two concerts in November. Our January POPS “Classical Mystery Tour: A Tribute to the Beatles” concert will entertain with your favorite songs of the Fab Four alongside the orchestra under the baton of Lonnie Klein. Don’t miss this opportunity to sing along to some of your favorite classic Beatles songs.

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. Community outreach is a large part of our mission, so in addition to our regular season we’ve added a POPS Under the Stars! outdoor 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!  This is an event you won’t want to miss.

Las Cruces is fortunate to have such a talented orchestra and conductor performing outstanding classical music for the citizens of southern New Mexico. Our Orchestra is truly a gem in the desert, making it easy to understand why our corner of the world is called The Land of Enchantment! Enjoy the season.
