The UNM Symphony Orchestra
The University Symphony Orchestra presents an average of nine concerts every year, performing major symphonic repertoire, works for chorus and orchestra (Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony, 1991, and Orff’s Carmina Burana, 1993), and an opera production in conjunction with the UNM Opera Theater (Puccini’s La Boheme, 1993).
In 1991, the Symphony Orchestra became the resident ensemble of the “Music Festival of the Americas” at the Universidad de las Américas in Cholula, Puebla, Mexico.
In 1992, the orchestra had a very successful twelve-concert tour between Albuquerque and Mexico City in commemoration of the “Camino Real” established by the Spaniards in the 16th century between Mexico City, Mexico, and Santa Fe, New Mexico. Many more exciting activities are planned for the future of this organization.
