Sonrisas! Smiles of a Summer Night

Tuesday, July 9, 2024

7:30 PM—Magers Field at Fort Marcy Park
FREE! With limited VIP Lawn Tickets available for $40

As part of Santa Fe’s outdoor “Summer Scene,” The Santa Fe Symphony is proud to present Sonrisas! Smiles of a Summer Night. Everyone is invited to join us at this exciting FREE event as The Symphony’s celebrates the final performance of its 40th Anniversary Season. Gather your friends and family and experience this collaborative performance with your Santa Fe Symphony Orchestra and the exciting rhythms of the Latin-music powerhouse band, Nosotros!

A Santa Fe favorite, Nosotros is undoubtedly the Southwest’s top dance band. They seamlessly combine Latin rhythms with elements of Rock, Salsa, Jazz, and Cumbia—creating an original sound that is unmistakable. Originally from Las Cruces, NM, Nosotros is now based in the Albuquerque/Santa Fe area. They have a near non-stop performance schedule and have been featured on NPR’s Alt Latino; named twice as winners in the prestigious John Lennon Songwriting Competition; and awarded 13 New Mexico Music Awards including “Best Latin Song” and “Best Arrangement,” and “Producer of the Year.”

Nosotros has shared the stage with some of the biggest names in music such as Tom Petty, The Black Crowes, Rod Stewart, Toto, and many more. Now you get to see them live in Santa Fe—sharing the stage with your Santa Fe Symphony Orchestra under the baton of guest conductor Thomas Heuser!


“Nosotros’ music is not to be explained, it is to be felt in the pit of our souls.”
M.E. Schenck of Hyperactive Music Magazine
