Santa Fe Sym­phony: Figueroa con­ducts

Pasatiempo - - RANDOM ACTS -

Guillermo Figueroa is well known to au­di­ences in this state, hav­ing served as mu­sic di­rec­tor of the New Mex­ico Sym­phony in Al­bu­querque from 2001 un­til it went un­der in 2011. This week­end he re­turns to con­duct the Santa Fe Sym­phony in what will prob­a­bly be his last ap­pear­ance with the group be­fore it de­cides who is to be its next prin­ci­pal con­duc­tor, a po­si­tion for which he is in con­tention. Al­though the pro­gram has no ex­plicit Valen­tine’s Day con­nec­tion, all three of the works on the con­cert are easy to love: We­ber’s Over­ture to Der Freis­chütz, Mozart’s Vi­olin Con­certo No. 5 (with soloist Michael Lud­wig), and Dvorák’sˇ Sym­phony No. 8. The con­cert be­gins at 4 p.m. on Sun­day, Feb. 14, at the Len­sic Per­form­ing Arts Cen­ter (211 W. San Fran­cisco St.). Tick­ets ($23-$80) can be pur­chased from the Len­sic (505-988-1234, www.tick­etssantafe. org). A 3 p.m. lecture is free to ticket hold­ers. — James M. Keller
