Music and Art in the Foothills 2015—2016 Season


Dear Friends of the Arts, As we draw near to the close of our twenty-ninth season of fine art and music in the foothills of the Sandias, I’d like to give you a heads up about an exciting pair of events PAS has lined up for the afternoon and evening of Sunday, August 14, 2016. These two spectacular events serve as the kickoff to our 30th season: “Stepping Out with Slatkin & McTee” will feature Internationally Acclaimed & Grammy-Winning Conductor Leonard Slatkin and Award-Winning American Composer Cindy McTee.  At 3:00 p.m. at Las Placitas Presbyterian Church, Placitas, New Mexico, Slatkin and McTee will join us for an interview, Q&A session and a performance of McTee’s short and playful work “Stepping Out,” followed by light refreshments and a chance to mingle with the artists. CDs and books will be available for purchase and signature by Slatkin & McTee. Tickets are $50. At 5:00 p.m. at a signature Placitas home, we will host a reception for Slatkin and McTee featuring hors d’oeuvres, libations and a silent auction. Tickets are $75. Combination tickets for both events are $125. Tickets for these impressive events are available exclusively online at our Stepping Out page. The money raised from these two events will support the PAS Endowment Fund. Please plan to join us for the final concert and visual arts exhibit of the season on May 15th, when Willy Sucre & Friends present Chamber Music for Strings and Horns featuring Krzysztof Zimowski, Justin Pollak, Joan Zucker, Peter Erb & Debra Fialek. Visit our Sneak Peek Page for a preview of our dynamic 30th Season that begins in September. On behalf of the Board, I thank you all for your support and attendance to this 29th, and our upcoming 30th season! Richard Reif President, Placitas Artists Series
