About The Santa Fe Symphony Orchestra & Chorus
The Symphony is a bold and successful collaboration between musicians and all who appreciate live performance. The organization in typical seasons performs 11-12 subscription concerts and three to four free community concerts annually. Our legacy of musical excellence goes hand-in-hand with our longstanding commitment to providing no-cost cultural outreach programs for the greater Santa Fe community. These initiatives include free concerts at the Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi, a variety of music education performances, and mentoring within the public schools, and performances at retirement homes and senior centers.
The Symphony’s orchestra is comprised of more than 50 tenured professional musicians from Central and Northern New Mexico. The size of the orchestra is expanded with guest professional musicians when required by the programming. The Symphony’s chorus is a volunteer ensemble of more than 60 singers, augmented by 12 paid professional vocalists, all of whom live in the Santa Fe area. The Board is currently comprised of 15 donor members and five musician members. The administrative staff totals six individuals.
