Community & Learning
TOGETHER, we are the music …

Our Chamber Ensembles are going on tour and taking great music beyond the Kids Classical Concerts to include Pueblo and other Northern New Mexico communities—providing hour-long education concerts not only to Santa Fe Public Schools but beyond!
Symphony Del Sur
Symphony Del Sur
Our Chamber Ensembles perform in a variety of community settings, including local schools, retirement homes and assisted living facilities, and this year—Santa Fe Farmer’s Market del Sur, a collaboration with the Santa Fe Youth Symphony Association.
Choral Scholars Program
Do you know a high school student who loves to sing? Be sure to sign up for our new apprentice program. This season we are offering positions to a limited number of high school choral singers to join The Symphony Chorus!
We introduce over 1,500 fifth graders to the wonder of symphonic music through our annual Discovery Concerts! Students are bused from Santa Fe, Pojoaque, Española, and Pueblo schools to the Lensic for a full concert featuring a bilingual storyteller Joe Hayes.
For seniors who aren’t able to attend concerts at The Lensic, The Symphony brings the music to their place of residence. Small group ensembles present informal concerts with a variety of music that touches residents enjoying an active senior lifestyle or those in assisted living or memory care.
Join us at the Santa Fe Public Library’s Southside Branch for a family-friendly series with Symphony musicians demonstrating their instruments and playing a variety of popular and classical music, fostering a connection with children and providing a chance for them to conduct the ensemble! Geared toward kids ages 5 to 10, but all ages are welcome!
Kids Classical Concerts
Kids Classical Concerts
Each year, Symphony ensembles visit elementary students at 9 Santa Fe Public Schools for an hour of music, education, and fun. They demonstrate each of their instruments, play a variety of music, popular and classical, fostering a lively interaction in which students are even given a chance to conduct!
Annually in December, we present Christmas Pops at The Lensic featuring a special side-by-side performance with Santa Fe’s very own Youth Symphony.
We proudly partner with the Santa Fe Public Schools for our award-winning Music Mentor program, bringing local music professionals into classrooms to support school ensemble programs through music coaching.
SFS Jazz Series
We are the music!
Through this new community outreach program, VA patients will be entertained by a Jazz Duo! We are taking live jazz concerts to the doorsteps of those who need music.
Thank you for helping us share the beauty of orchestral and choral music!
