Albuquerque Philharmonic Orchestra gives two free concerts including one at the National Hispanic Cultural Center. If you can’t make one performance, go to the other!

The two free Albuquerque Philharmonic Orchestra concerts are on November 4 and November 5, 2012. Both classical concerts feature the same program of Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 5, ‘Emperor,’ with guest piano soloist Conor Hanick, plus Symphony No. 9 by Shostakovich, and the Academic Festival Overture by Brahms. That’s a really beautiful line-up of music. The concerts are conducted by David Felberg – he’s the assistant director of the UNM Symphony Orchestra and has performed with just about every New Mexico orchestra worth mentioning.

The free Albuquerque Philharmonic Orchestra concerts take place:

  • Sunday November 4 at 2 pm at the V. Sue Cleveland High Concert Hall, 4800 Laban Road NE, Rio Rancho.
  • Monday November 5 at 7:30 pm at the National Hispanic Cultural Center, 1701 4th Street SW.

The V. Sue Cleveland Fine Arts Center and Concert Hall was named Best Cultural Project 2011 by ENR Southwest and it’s a very fine concert hall. And we all know how gorgeous the National Hispanic Cultural Center is as a venue.

Thank you very much to the Albuquerque Philharmonic Orchestra for giving us the chance to hear such wonderful classical music – not even on the cheap, but totally free.  Although they do of course accept donations :-)
