3rd Avenue Concert Series

Our newly-minted 3rd Avenue Concert Series brings the San Juan Symphony to new and unique venues around the Four Corners. Originally the St. Mark’s Recital Series, founded in the beautiful St. Mark’s Episcopal Church on 3rd Avenue in Durango, these diverse programs provide our community with an opportunity to experience a variety of musical styles in smaller, more intimate ensemble combinations.

Durango Bach Festival

The timeless music of Johann Sebastian Bach is the focus of the annual Durango Bach Festival, a week-long series of events that includes student recitals, evening performances with choir, soloists, and orchestra, and the popular Bach’s Lunch series.

Free Student Recitals

Two recitals (2 pm and 4 pm) are planned for Sunday, March 3rd, 2024 at Summit Church in Durango. Both recitals are free and open to the public, with a reception to follow. Student applications are now open.

Applications are due on or before February 1, 2024. 


20MOONS Collaboration 

The 2024 Durango Bach Festival kicks off with FACETS featuring the world premiere of a new production that combines the 20MOONS dance theater company with select musicians of the San Juan Symphony.  The collaboration will re-envision and reimagine the music of John Sebastian Bach as an embodied journey through the many transformative experiences of a human life.
