Sun, Mar 1 onetime 3 PM - 5 PM

Superstar Midori

The Santa Fe Pro Musica Orchestra, Thomas O'Connor, conductor, presents a must-see concert featuring superstar violinist Midori. The concert opens with Beethoven's Symphony No. 8 in F Major, Op. 93, followed by Musica Celestis by Aaron Kernis. For the grand finale, Midori takes to the stage to perform Schumann's Violin Concerto in D Minor.

The New York Times describes Midori: “There was a touching sense that much more was being implied than could be said, that here was someone smiling through tears – or weeping through laughter. The ambiguity was complete, and right.” visit our website

Lannan Foundation presents Readings & Conversations: Kevin Barry with Ethan Nosowsky.

Kevin Barry described his home in his native Ireland by saying, “I myself live in County Sligo in what seem like the perfect conditions for a writer—a room looking out on a swampy lake, all very atmospheric, ethereal mists, yadda yadda, and there's nothing to f-----g do but write.” Barry's recent story collection, Dark Lies the Island, includes tales of unreformed criminals, awkward youth in love, and middle-aged women on a road trip making plans for a kidnapping. Of his original and fresh writing, The Paris Review writes, “Barry's language drags you into a strange, darkly lyrical world, enacting his own definition of literature as a mode of transport.”

Barry's first novel, City of Bohane, appeared in the UK in 2011 and went on to win the International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award. It was described by The New Yorker as, “A grizzled piece of futuristic Irish noir with strong ties to the classic gang epics of yore.”

Ethan Nosowsky has said, “There are no dead subjects, just dead writing.” Nosowsky has worked as an editor at Farrar, Straus and Giroux and McSweeney's, and currently serves as editorial director at Graywolf Press. He has edited books by Geoff Dyer, Stephen Elliott, Hilton Als and Dave Eggers among many others. Nosowsky has taught in the creative writing program at Columbia University and has contributed to Bookforum, The Believer and the San Francisco Chronicle. visit our website

The Lensic and Round Mountain present Round Mountain: Beginnings Where the Endings Be.

This evening of music celebrates the generational continuity of music and the vibrancy and diversity of Santa Fe's musical offerings. The concert will feature the Santa Fe Youth Philharmonia, students from the Santa Fe University of Art & Design University Chorus and instrumental guests, as well as a small chorus from Turquoise Trail Charter School. Proceeds benefit the Santa Fe Youth Philharmonia and the Steven M. Miller Endowed Scholarship for Music Composition and Sound Design at SFUAD.

Round Mountain tours nationally and features Santa Fe's own Char and Robby Rothschild. The two blend dusty American grit with a worldly amalgam of global influences and present a singular take on folk music that is both foreign and familiar. Between them they play a dozen instruments throughout their concerts, leading them to be called “the two-man singing folk orchestra.”

Of this performance, Robby says: “We're living in a time that feels like it's on the verge of some huge and unknowable change. We acknowledge this and look to music from all places for sustenance and courage. We stand together with musicians, those who have raised us and those who inspire us with their new ideas and energy.” visit our website
