The night be­fore: Per­for­mance Santa Fe Orchestra

Pasatiempo - - JENNIFER GOES -

Ev­ery year, the Per­for­mance Santa Fe Orchestra, con­ducted by Joseph Il­lick, of­fers a Christ­mas Eve con­cert that is thought­fully sched­uled early enough so folks can stoke them­selves with fine mu­sic be­fore head­ing off to the Farolito Walk on Canyon Road. At 5 p.m. on Thurs­day, Dec. 24, the pro­gram con­sists of Prokofiev’s Symphony No. 5, which its com­poser char­ac­ter­ized as “glo­ri­fy­ing the grandeur of the hu­man spirit,” and Brahms’ Dou­ble Con­certo. The lat­ter, orig­i­nally com­posed to spot­light vi­o­lin and cello, will be given in an ar­range­ment made for duo-pi­anists An­der­son & Roe, who are re­turn­ing for a re­peat visit with Per­for­mance Santa Fe. The con­cert will be pre­ceded at 2 p.m. that af­ter­noon by a fam­ily con­cert of the same pro­gram, es­sen­tially a dress re­hearsal with some com­men­tary. Both events take place at the Len­sic Per­form­ing Arts Cen­ter (211 W. San Francisco St.). Tick­ets cost $27-$100 for the evening con­cert and $20 ($5 for chil­dren) for the fam­ily per­for­mance; they can be pur­chased by call­ing 505-988-1234 or vis­it­ing www.tick­etssantafe.org. — J.M.K
