Gold rush: Santa Fe Com­mu­nity Orches­tra

Pasatiempo - - RANDOM ACTS -

The Santa Fe Com­mu­nity Orches­tra closes its sea­son with a free concert (donations ac­cepted) at 2:30 p.m. on Sun­day, June 4, at St. Fran­cis Au­di­to­rium (New Mex­ico Mu­seum of Art, 107 W. Palace Ave.). Ev­ery year this non­pro­fes­sional but en­thu­si­as­tic orches­tra holds a com­pe­ti­tion for new sym­phonic com­po­si­tions, and it will pre­miere the lat­est win­ner in this concert: The Ru­ins of Quivira by Santa Fe pi­anist-and-com­poser Charles Blan­chard. (Quivira was one of the myth­i­cal Seven Cities of Gold that Fran­cisco Vásquez de Coron­ado and sev­eral en­su­ing con­quis­ta­dores never man­aged to find.) Also on the pro­gram, con­ducted by Oliver Prezant, are Rim­sky-Kor­sakov’s Scheherazade and the “Sym­phonic Noc­turne” from Kurt Weill’s Lady in the Dark (a concert suite ar­ranged by Robert Rus­sell Ben­nett from the score to this 1941 Broad­way mu­si­cal about psy­cho­anal­y­sis). For fur­ther in­for­ma­tion, call at 505-466-4879 or visit www.sfco.org. — J.M.K.
