2021 Spring Virtual Concert Series
Having received critical acclaim for our 2020 Fall Virtual Concert Series, filmed and produced by Santa Fe’s Hutton Broadcasting, The Santa Fe Symphony is excited to confirm the launch of its Spring 2021 Virtual Concert Series, which will again be filmed by Hutton and released in March of 2021. Producing these high-definition films, shot with multiple cameras and drones, has resulted in extraordinary hour-long concerts that highlight not only the phenomenal talent of The Symphony’s musicians, but the dramatic Santa Fe landscapes and impressive historical architecture that serve as the series’ venues. Symphony ensembles performed in safe environments, following CDC and state guidelines, at some of the most stunning locations in the state of New Mexico: Ghost Ranch, Thornburg Investments’ Rooftop, Santa Fe Children’s Museum, Santa Fe Botanical Garden, and the Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi.
The Museum of International Folk Art, founded in 1953, is one of the few museums in the United States dedicated to folk art from around the world. Its permanent exhibits include an awe-inspiring display of 10,000 pieces of folk art, toys, miniatures, textiles, and more from the collection of Alexander and Susan Girard. The museum also showcases the collection of founder Florence Dibell Bartlett, who donated more than 2,500 textiles, costumes, ceramics, wood carvings, paintings, and jewelry.
The first building in the state dedicated to art, the New Mexico Museum of Art showcases the state’s rich culture. The style of the building, called Pueblo Revival, uses modern construction materials made to look like the historic adobe churches found throughout the state’s Pueblos. Throughout its century-long history, the museum has grown and redefined itself to adapt to changes both in art and in museum practices.
This concert will premiere Sunday, April 18 at 4 pm but will be available to view through May 18.
