Meet Our Executive Director!

Emma Scherer

On behalf of The Santa Fe Symphony Orchestra & Chorus, welcome to our 39th Season! We are honored to share our creativity, dedication, and passion with you. Each of our 2022–2023 Season concerts showcases magnificent artists from right here in New Mexico, in addition to some of the brightest up-and-coming soloists in classical music. Our brilliant Principal Conductor, Maestro Guillermo Figueroa, and Choral Director Carmen Flórez-Mansi lead the orchestral and choral musicians to create breathtaking artistic experiences time after time.

We believe that classical music is a living art form. It connects us with our past, present, and future. The Symphony continues to present a wide array of beloved symphonic favorites and contemporary composers. Our commitment to highlighting diverse voices is stronger than ever, with female artists and composers and soloists of color taking center stage at every concert. Together, we can uplift all voices in classical music and encourage future generations to continue this beautiful tradition of symphonic and choral music—right here in Santa Fe.

Your Santa Fe Symphony Orchestra & Chorus is dedicated to our community, offering an ever-growing complement of community and engagement programming that impacts thousands of New Mexicans each year. Our musicians are local to New Mexico. They perform across the region in libraries, schools, Pueblo communities, senior centers, assisted living facilities, and other accessible venues. We invest in future generations of artists and music lovers through our award-winning Discovery Concerts, Music Mentors, and other programs that reach communities across Northern New Mexico.

Each and every one of you has made this season possible, just by joining us this season. Your gratitude and generosity makes all the difference as we bring great music to life. If you are already a member of The Symphony’s donor family, thank you! If you would like to be more involved, we invite you to get to know us better by adopting a musician, becoming a member of our Symphony Club, sponsoring an artist or performance, volunteering your time, or leaving a legacy for future generations of symphony lovers.

The Santa Fe Symphony Orchestra & Chorus is stronger than ever, thanks to YOU. We look forward to sharing our concerts with you and invite you to return again and again to enjoy beautiful music in our beautiful city.

Warm regards,
Emma Scherer
Executive Director
