WELCOME BACK! I’m pleased to announce Southwest Arts’ 2021–2022 in-person season! Take a look at the list of concerts and you’ll notice that there’s a great variety of concerts ahead! You’ll have the rare opportunity to hear a ten-string guitar (Nicolò Spera), music performed by three performers at one piano (the Inouye Sisters), and works for solo piano (Tzu-feng Liu).

The women of Polyphony will sing in March and Coro Santa Fe will sing for you in May.
