Live and on film at the KiMo, this gala is headlined by the nationally acclaimed New Mexico Symphonic Chorus and also features a performance by the Keshet Dance Company.
Musical Traditions of Italy – Live and on Film! at the KiMo. Headlining this gala musical event is our own nationally-acclaimed New Mexico Symphonic Chorus under the direction of Roger Melone with a fabulous slate of Italian opera choral selections and a surprise offering to close out the show – and bring down the house! Enjoy fun and colorful traditional Italian folk dance performed by another of our state’s renowned talents, Keshet Dance Company. Feast your eyes and ears on a very special film greeting sent to us in friendship by the foremost Italian men’s choir, the Coro Illersberg di Trieste. And there’s more…in this not-to-be-missed opening celebration. Arrive early to explore the lobby exhibits and enjoy a glass of wine (cash bar) hosted by yet another New Mexico award winner, Casa Rondena Winery.
