Prin­ci­pal player: Santa Fe Sym­phony

Pasatiempo - - RANDOM ACTS -

As the Santa Fe Sym­phony con­tin­ues its search for a prin­ci­pal con­duc­tor, it en­trusts this week’s test run to Ryan McA­dams, who from 2007 to 2012 served as mu­sic direc­tor of the New York Youth Sym­phony and since then has ap­peared as a guest con­duc­tor with the Is­rael Phil­har­monic and the sym­phony orches­tras of Nancy, France, and Turin, Italy, among oth­ers. He has gar­nered con­sid­er­able no­tice as an ad­vo­cate of new mu­sic, although his pro­gram here sticks to the tried-andtrue: Brahms’ Sym­phony No. 1, se­lec­tions from Dvorˇák’s Slavonic Dances, and Si­belius’ Vi­o­lin Con­certo (with the young Amer­i­can vi­o­lin­ist Alexi Ken­ney as soloist). The con­cert takes place at 4 p.m. on Sun­day, April 12, at the Lensic Per­form­ing Arts Cen­ter (211 W. San Fran­cisco St.). A pre­con­cert lec­ture at 3 p.m. is free to ticket hold­ers. Tick­ets ($11 to $72) can be ob­tained di­rectly from the sym­phony (505-983-1414) or through Tick­ets Santa Fe (505-988-1234; www.tick­etssantafe.org). — J.M.K.
