Wind music: Concordia Santa Fe
Donald McKinney, director of bands at the University of Colorado in Boulder, serves as guest conductor for the Concordia Santa Fe Wind Orchestra. Concordia describes itself as “one of only a handful of professionallevel wind orchestras in the country,” while also allowing that its members are not actually remunerated for their performances with the ensemble. Among the pieces on the orchestra’s Sunday, May 24, program are Norman Dello Joio’s “Fantasies on a Theme by Haydn” and Leonard Bernstein’s “Symphonic Suite From On
the Waterfront.” The free concert takes place at 2 p.m. at St. Francis Auditorium (New Mexico Museum of Art, 107 W. Palace Ave.).
