Santa Fe Pro Musica
Ranked #144 of 270 things to do in Santa Fe
Reviewed 15 April 2013

I attended a magnificent concert yesterday at the Lensic. A seventeen year old violin virtuoso was accompanied by a spectacular orchestra. The second act was a perfect Beethoven's Third Symphony. Going home, I reflected on the gift that Pro Musica has been to Santa Fe over the years. I have lived here long enough to see ensembles come and go. Some I miss, but some just didn't get the essence of this town. The attitude of a larger town just doesn't work here. This is not Los Angeles or Denver, with the dreams and sometimes delusions of artistic grandeur of those big cities. We are smaller, with limited professional opportunities, but Santa Fe's heart is still art. It is still a mecca here for dedicated artists. Pro Musica is an organization that has lasted here and gets this. I hope those who appreciate world-class classical music recognize the gem we have in our midst, and keeps them alive and performing.

Thoughtful, carefully planned, and masterfully executed concerts that vary from symphonic to chamber music to soloists. Venues change too, from the Lensic to the St Francis Auditorium to the Chapel at Loretto. A much 'leaner' sound than a larger symphony orchestra, such as Philadelphia, but crisp and lively interpretations of the classics (Beethoven, Mozart, etc.) and always a few surprising choices. Especially fine Baroque music concerts. If you are in SF during Christmastime, go to a concert at the Loretto Chapel for a special experience.

We attended a Pro Musica Christmas concert held at the Loretto Chapel and the music was wonderful. They were extraordinary musicians and singers.
