Pasatiempo - - Onstage This Week -

Ev­ery­one knows that the servers at La Casa Sena Cantina (125 E. Palace Ave.) can belt out a show tune. On New Year’s Eve Eve — that’s Thurs­day, Dec. 30 — the front-of-house staff croons its way through a trib­ute to Glee, the Fox net­work’s high-school-cho­rus pot­boiler, in a per­for­mance called A Glee­ful New Year’s. Shows be­gin at 5:30 and 8:30 p.m. and ac­com­pany serv­ings of a $50 per per­son menu. The show re­peats on New Year’s Eve; for de­tails, call 988-9232.

Robert Se­quoia de­scribes him­self a “nuevo Ro­man­tic gui­tarist” whose “mu­si­cal roots go back to his fam­ily lin­eage of Ro­ma­nian Gypsy mu­si­cians,” but clas­si­cal and Span­ish tra­di­tions have also left a mark on his style. His con­certs some­times touch on as­pects of heal­ing, com­pas­sion, and en­vi­ron­men­tal aware­ness. Sev­eral in­stru­men­tal­ist-col­leagues join him for a wide-rang­ing pro­gram Tues­day, Dec. 28, at Loretto Chapel (207 Old Santa Fe Trail). Tick­ets, $20 to $30, are avail­able at the door. Doors open at 7 p.m.; for reser­va­tions, call 505-990-5978. If you missed Wise Fool New Mex­ico’s typ­ing ca­naries and high-fly­ing an­tics dur­ing the non­profit per­form­ing-arts out­fit’s ap­pear­ances in this year’s Cir­cus Lu­mi­nous, it’s not too late to re­deem your­self. At 4 and 7 p.m. Sun­day, Dec. 26, Wise Fool presents its Hol­i­day Fam­ily Cabaret fundraiser at its Santa Fe stu­dio (2778 Agua Fría St., Unit D, 992-2588). Brace your­selves for trapeze artists, aerial per­form­ers, gi­ant pup­pets, ac­ro­bats, live mu­si­cians, a belly-danc­ing clown — and maybe even a par­tridge in a pear tree. Tick­ets, $10 to $15 for adults (slid­ing scale) and $5 for kids 12 and un­der, are avail­able on­line at www.wise­fool­newmex­ico.org and at the door start­ing at 2 p.m. the day of the per­for­mances. An early Christ­mas Eve with the Santa Fe Con­cert As­so­ci­a­tion Or­ches­tra is a tra­di­tion for the town’s mu­sic lovers. This year’s in­stall­ment takes place at 5 p.m. Fri­day, Dec. 24, at the Len­sic Per­form­ing Arts Cen­ter, 211 W. San Fran­cisco St. It fea­tures an over­ture by Rossini, a Mozart sym­phony, and a Beethoven con­certo: his Triple Con­certo, a spa­cious, Apol­lo­nian work that is per­formed here with vi­o­lin­ist Irina Mure­sanu, cel­list Wendy Warner, and pi­anist Joseph Il­lick (who dou­bles as the or­ches­tra’s con­duc­tor). Tick­ets ($20 to $84) are avail­able through the Len­sic box of­fice, by call­ing 988-1234, or by vis­it­ing www.tick­etssantafe.com.
