SOCORRO – The New Mexico Philharmonic Orchestra will showcase the works of Baroque composer Johann Sebastian Bach in a New Mexico Tech Performing Arts Series concert starting at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 8, at Macey Center.
The program features violin soloist Krzysztof Zimowski and Christopher Confessore, who will conduct the 26-member orchestra, comprised of strings, flute, oboes, trumpet, timpani and harpsichord.
On the evening’s program are Bach’s Orchestral Suite No. 2 in b minor, Violin Concerto in a minor, Violin Concerto in E Major, and Orchestral Suite No. 3 in D Major. The program includes an intermission.
“This concert marks the first PAS appearance for the New Mexico Philharmonic, which is basically the New Mexico Symphony Orchestra reorganized by the members themselves under a new name,” said PAS Director Ronna Kalish. The NMSO operated from 1932 until 2011, when it declared bankruptcy.
Tickets are $20 for adults, $18 for seniors and $10 for youth, and are available at the N.M. Tech Cashier’s Office (second floor of Fidel Center), Brownbilt Shoes and Western Wear, Burrito Tyme Drive-up, online at nmtpas.org, or at the door.
