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 2014-2015 season of the Las Cruces Symphony Orchestra. I’m delighted to welcome everyone back into the recital hall for our 35th spectacular year. This season features a diverse repertoire with six dynamic Classics concert cycles featuring guest solo artists from around the world; beginning with 13 year old child prodigy, Sujari Britt, playing cello. Our January POPS “Classical Night Fever” concert will entertain with disco music featuring the Motor City Booty Affair performing well known songs from the 1970s alongside the orchestra under the baton of Lonnie Klein. Don’t miss this opportunity to sing along to some of your favorite oldies.

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. A highlight for me last season was the “side-by-side” youth concerts in November when we invited the 4th grade students of Las Cruces to hear live music performed by the Orhcestra. After one concert I overheard a little boy tell his classmate, “I’d rather listen to this every day than watch TV!” His excitement was palpable, and I knew we had a future musician, or at the very least a new symphony music lover in our midst. This child’s enthusiasm is the reason music education is so important, and I’m honored to be able to offer this to our city’s youth.

Las Cruces is fortunate to have such a talented orchestra and conductor performing outstanding classical music for the citizens of southern New Mexico. I invite you to listen to the music as if hearing it for the first time, with the ears of a child; discovering something new and inspirational, exciting and exhilarating. Enjoy the season.
