The Las Cruces Symphony Association (LCSA) is a non-profit, 501(c)(3), organization that strives to promote public interest and support for orchestral music in Southern New Mexico. The Association’s volunteer Board of Directors is comprised of local community leaders with a love for symphonic music. The LCSA’s main purpose is generating financial support for the Orchestra through annual fundraisers, the promotion of season ticket sales, and donations from individual and corporate contributors. The LCSA provides scholarships for talented New Mexico State University music students, giving these students the opportunity to play in the Orchestra alongside professional musicians from the area and around the world.
The Italian pianist, Andrea Padova, studied piano with Vincenzo Vitale, Aldo Ciccolini, Eric Larsen and composition with Franco Donatoni at the Accademia Nazionale di S.Cecilia in Rome. Later he developed his knowledge of 18th century performance practice and that of ancient instruments. At the same time, deeply involved in contemporary music, he collaborated with famous composers, among which Pierre Boulez, Goffredo Petrassi, Franco Donatoni, and Leonard Bernstein.
