According to a news report in the Albuquerque Journal, the New Mexico Symphony Orchestra has filed for bankruptcy, meaning the rest of the symphony’s concerts are cancelled. After struggling to stay afloat for the past few years, the symphony has finally closed its doors, according to the article. We are saddened to see this cultural icon dissolve. If you currently hold season tickets or have already purchased tickets to an upcoming concert, it appears that refunds will not be issued and that ticket-holders will become part of the bankruptcy proceedings.
We at APPCityLife have enthusiastically supported the New Mexico Symphony Orchestra since our launch of the Albuquerque CityLife Guide in the App Store last year, providing users fingertip access to their full season calendar and enabling concert-goers to purchase tickets on the NMSO website through the app. We are sorry to see their doors close and wish the entire talented staff of musicians the very best.
