Violin Virtuoso Hilary Hahn in Santa Fe

Recognizing that people these days travel with their music stored in MP3 players, we have docking stations and speakers in each guest room of The Madeleine Bed & Breakfast Inn.  While iPods and other such devices make it ever so easy to store music these days, nothing can compare to the magic of live music, particularly when one has the opportunity to hear a true virtuoso.  Residents and visitors to Santa Fe will soon have such an opportunity, as violin superstar Hilary Hahn will be performing on Tuesday, February 19th at the Lensic Performing Arts Center.

Though only 31 years old, Hilary Hahn is one of the most sought-after artists of the day.  She performs with the world's most prestigious orchestras, has won two Grammies, and has received multiple Diapason "d'Or de l'Annee" and "Preis der deutschen Schallplattenkritik" prizes.  Her technical brilliance, thoughtful interpretations and tireless work to communicate her love of classical music with other others led to her being recognized in 2011 by Time Magazine as "America's Best Young Classical Musician".

Santa Fe is one stop on a US tour titled In 27 Pieces: The Hilary Hahn Encores, which includes works by Beethoven and Bach as well as specially commissioned pieces by two dozen contemporary composers.

Tickets for this remarkable performance are available online or by calling the Lensic Box Office at 505.988.1234.  Ticket prices range from $20-$75, with student discounts available.
