Alec Benjamin and Alexa Villa will be performing at the Fine Arts Center Theatre instead of on the Fountain Stage to keep everyone safe and comfortable.

Celebrating the 55th Annual Great Race, Western New Mexico University Cultural Affairs presents GR 55 Live. The two nights of music under Silver City’s starry skies add to the lineup of events making up the university’s longest-running tradition, which centers around human-powered cart races over and through the hilly campus.
