Visit with Symphony family and friends while enjoying hors d’oeuvres, fine wine and a gourmet light supper buffet, then settle back for a very special experience. Lovely homes and spectacular sunset views provide the perfect backdrop for the magic of these intimate gatherings.
As the musicians play and interact with the audience, you will be enveloped by the sounds of phenomenal sopranos, pianists, violinists and other artists whose music reaches into the soul. You will witness our musicians leaving their comfort zones for the wilds of New Orleans jazz or forming unusual ensemble combinations such as The Bosque Bassoon Band—all this is likely to bring you chills, tears, and laughter.
As members of The Symphony Club, you are invited to participate in these wonderful evenings four times each year. Musicians’ Circle members receive eight invitations per year; Conductors’ Circle and above receive invitations to nine Musicales.
The musicians performing at our Musicales are generously underwritten by Sotheby’s International Realty and Gregg Antonsen, and Lexus of Santa Fe.
Special thanks to the generous patrons who offer their homes and hospitality for the Musicales, and to Emily Zants and our “Cooking Chorus” for providing the gourmet fare.
The thing we love about Musicales is the chance to interact with our audiences, up close ... and we musicians are really able to ‘let our hair down’ and get to know you all as friends.
We enjoy like-minded people and amazing music in the intimate setting of one’s own home.
The act of chamber music performance is, for me, one of the most intimate experiences, for both the musician and the audience. The intimacy engenders a power of communion that can be transformative. Musicales are a wonderful opportunity for me to connect more deeply with The Santa Fe Symphony audience through my musical relationships with The Symphony musicians. I’m thrilled every time I get to take part!
