Benefit concert for the New Mexico Philharmonic.
“CHANGING LIVES…Making a Difference Where It Counts” Please join us for an evening of live entertainment as we celebrate the success of the New Mexico Philharmonic at the beginning of its third spectacular season. The evening will focus on the Philharmonic's contributions to our community through its educational programs and free community concerts. International superstar violinist, Rachel Barton Pine, will perform a variety of musical styles--Latin, Rock, and Classical--accompanied by the New Mexico Philharmonic. A 9-year-old piano prodigy will perform Mozart, and young jazz keyboard and guitar talents will provide entertainment during the concert's opening. Great food, libations, Silent and Live Auctions will continue the excitement. A performance by students from Dolores Gonzales Elementary will be the highlight of the evening. These students were part of this past season's Young Musician Initiative in-depth intensive music education program, and have demonstrated great improvements not only in musical ability, but in all areas of their lives. All Benefit tickets are $100 each. The portion of the ticket price that is deductible as a charitable contribution is $75. Opening Reception and Silent Auction 5:30pm - 6:30pm Performances and Live Auction 6:30pm - 9:00pm
