Strolling around the Plaza, we decided to walk down the street to the OKeefe museum. Discovered an free afternoon performance of the symphony. Spent an hour listening to the classical selections of three famous composers. Beautiful music in a lovely historical setting.

We love this amazing orchestra. Have heard more wonderful and varied music here in 3 years than in 20 years in Washington DC where prices kept us away.

The Lensic is a lovely old movie theatre repurposed to a Charming Performing Arts center. Offerings include the Met Broadcasts, many local groups in addition to the symphony. Seating on both levels is excellent with good sight lines to the stage. Great shortage of restroom facilities. A city parking garage is right across the street.

If you like classical music and live in, or are planning to visit, Santa Fe New Mexico, you NEED to hear the Santa Fe Symphony. Their recent concert included a phenomenal performance of Bruckner's Fourth Symphony that had to be one of the best live renditions ever! John M.

My wife and Saw and heard the santa fe symphony yesterday and the conductor and orchestra were truly exceptional, totally professional, and the music Bruckner's 4th was fantastic. If there is a performance when you are visiting don't miss it. Incidentally the Lensic Theater is beautiful

Eight of us went to the symphony New Years Eve for the 6-8 show. It was very enjoyable and one of the highlights of the trip.

The best classical music in the state. Great and comfortable venue in the Lensic, just a couple blocks from the Plaza.

This is a first class symphony and chorus. One might expect this in a large city, but this organization could compete anywhere with any other symphony. Outstanding performance!

For a town this size, a very nice surprise. Not the NY Philharmonic, but well performed masterworks are always a pleasure even so.

The director is very emotional and conveys that to the orchestra. It's a real experience listening to them and watching him perform.
