Twenty-seven years ago, a group of dedicated musicians and music-lovers, under the leadership of Founder, Gregory W. Heltman, made a bold decision to establish a professional symphony orchestra in Santa Fe. Since then, the Santa Fe Symphony Orchestra & Chorus has continued to fulfill its mission to inspire, delight, engage, and enrich audiences of all ages and cultures in Santa Fe, Northern New Mexico and beyond, offering orchestral and choral concerts of the highest professional quality as well as education and outreach programs for adults and schoolchildren. Performing a regular subscription series at the 790-seat Lensic Performing Arts Center, the Santa Fe Symphony, conducted by Music Director Steven Smith, is recognized as a vital, community-focused musical organization. It is one of two fully professional, full-sized symphony orchestras in the state and is the largest professional symphonic organization in Santa Fe.
