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. Collaborations with other local non-profit performing arts organizations enhance the Festival’s community impact each season.

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.
