The Western New Mexico University Cultural Affairs fall season kicks off with a concert by Americana trio Red Molly on Thursday, September 13, 2018.

The fall season is packed with seven concerts, two artist lectures and exhibits, a documentary film, and one exotic visual performance. WNMU Cultural Affairs will be continuing its President’s Chamber Music Series and the Edwina Milner Women in the Arts lecture series this fall through this spring.

From throwback bands like Hotel California — A Salute to the Eagles and folksy vocalists like Red Molly to high-energy performances like SIRO A — Techno Circus, the WNMU Cultural Affairs fall lineup appeals to families and to university students.

“We are very excited about this season’s offerings and eager to welcome the community onto WNMU’s beautiful campus to experience arts and culture. We scheduled a mix of high-quality performances and visual arts to provide something for everyone,” said Faye McCalmont, WNMU’s Special Assistant to the President for Cultural Affairs.

Admission prices range from free to $15, and President’s Chamber Music series passes are available for $60 and are good for spring chamber music events, too.

The WNMU Cultural Affairs fall season will make use of a variety of on-campus venues, like the historic Light Hall, the spacious Fine Arts Center Theatre, the stunning McCray Gallery, the intimate Parotti Hall and The Gardens, WNMU’s all-purpose open-air setting.
