Mozart at the Lensic

$12 student and heavily discounted parent tickets are available NOW for our students for this weekend’s performances by violinist Benjamin Beilman with the Santa Fe Pro Musica Chamber Orchestra at the Lensic Theater! Performances are 4 pm Saturday and 3 pm Sunday. Call Janet Gilchrist at the Pro Musica Box Office 505.988.4640 x1000 right away to reserve your seats. Restrictions may apply. Call now! Do not wait– this offer is not available at the door! Mention at the very beginning of your call that you are interested in student price tickets, and that you would love a parent discount (we also love it if you mention that you are students of Margaret and Rick). Beilman started out as a Suzuki student! He’s playing Mozart! Margaret and Rick are playing! Can you think of any reason not to go?
