Welcome to our 40th Anniversary Season

2023–2024

Celebrating 40 years of bringing great music to life!

This season, we mark 40 years of live classical music, 40 years of star power onstage, and 40 years of caring for our musicians and our community. This is no small feat. But thanks to our loyal supporters, we are about to kick off yet another year of great music with our world-class orchestral musicians and a season to remember—our celebratory 40th Anniversary Season.

During this landmark 40th Anniversary Season, we’re excited to share 40 Events with you to celebrate great music! Please join your Santa Fe Symphony family for a resurrection of one of our most popular annual fundraisers—Champagne & Chocolates at Rio Chama Prime Steakhouse just off the Santa Fe Plaza —a “home away from home” for Santafeans.

This legacy event will feature the musical stylings of pianist Doug Montgomery, a longtime Santa Fe icon and musical treasure. Montgomery’s unforgettable live performances and his numerous versatile recordings reveal the vast talent of this world-class musician.
