Albuquerque Philharmonic Free Christmas Concerts
Albuquerque Philharmonic Orchestra gives two identical free concerts before Christmas, so if you can’t make one evening, go to the other!
The two free Albuquerque Philharmonic Orchestra concerts with guest conductor Wojciech Milewski are on December 19 and 21, 2015. No tickets are required and admittance is on a first come, first served basis. Even though these concerts are free, donations are gratefully accepted. www.nmapo.org or (505)433-7445.
Both classical concerts feature the same program: “In Autumn” by Grieg, Symphony No.1 (mvts 1 & 2) by Tchaikovsky, “A Winter’s Tale” by Lars-Erik Larsson, Karelia Suite and Spring Song, both by Sibelius.
The free Albuquerque Philharmonic Orchestra concerts take place:
- Friday December 19, 2014 at 7:30 pm at St. Therese Church, 3424 Fourth St NW Albuquerque.
- Sunday December 21, 2014 at 3:00 pm at the Hiland Theater/NDI, 4800 Central Ave SE, Albuquerque.
I went to one of the Albuquerque Philharmonic Orchestra concerts and it was a real knockout. It was beautiful to hear this incredible music in a relatively intimate setting – so close that you can feel just about every vibration in your body. What a gift it is to be able to experience this.
Thank you very much to the Albuquerque Philharmonic for giving us the chance to hear such wonderful classical music by such accomplished musicians – not even on the cheap, but totally free!
