On Wednesday, June 14th Los Poblanos will host a performance in the La Quinta Ballroom in collaboration with Chamber Music Albuquerque as part of the 2023 Dr. Armin Rembe Lecture Series. Chamber Music Albuquerque was founded in 1942 as the June Music Festival by Ruth and Albert Simms, and re-named in 1997 by the Board of Directors to better describe the scope of the organization’s programs. The series was the first of its kind in New Mexico and attracted guests from around the state as well as visitors from far as New York and Detroit and was broadcasted live on radio station KOB. We are excited to revive this connection between CMA and the La Quinta Cultural Center.
