Pasatiempo - - ACTS RANDOM -

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.).
