The New Horizons Symphony will present its winter concert at 3 p.m. on Sunday, February 24 at the NMSU Atkinson Recital Hall in Las Cruces. The program will be led by newly appointed music director and conductor Jorge Martinez-Rios, associate professor at NMSU. The concert is free and open to the public. The program will highlight the talents of the NMSU Music Department’s string program. Simón Gollo, NMSU assistant professor of violin, will perform the lyrical “Thais Meditation” by Massenet and “Zigeunerweisen” (also known as Gypsy Airs) by Sarasate. Mozart’s “Sinfonia Concertante” will feature Amalia Zeitlin on violin and Julio Campos on viola. Zeitlin is working on her master’s degree and Campos just completed his. Also on the program are Rossini’s “L’Italiana in Algeri Overture” and the ever-popular “Mars” and “Jupiter” movements from Holst’s ‘The Planets.” New Horizons Symphony in Las Cruces is a nonprofit organization and member of New Horizons International Music Association which provides musical opportunities for adults. The NHS gives three concerts a year and rehearses Thursday evenings in the NMSU Band Room. For more information about the concert, call 575-521-8771.
