[ARCHIVED] Virtual Music in the Park Performances Available for Online Viewing

Virtual Music

For the past 15 months, the City of Las Cruces Parks and Recreation Department’s Music in the Park series hosted and recorded 46 Virtual Music Performances featuring area and regional country, rock, blues, Spanish, mariachi, folk, and jazz musicians. These performances were recorded during lock-down periods when state and local public health orders did not allow for in-person audiences. (Live in-person music performances with audience were held from July through the end of August 2021.)

When the Covid-19 pandemic hit, the City of Las Cruces felt it was important to stay engaged and connected to our local musicians during this difficult situation. Area musicians were hit hard, as were many in our community.

Virtual Music in the Park provides the opportunity for area musicians to showcase their talents to audiences near and far. Each performance highlights the unique experience of working through this virtual format and each performers vibe in that moment.

These performances can be seen through the department's web site www.las-cruces.org/MusicInThePark and the City of Las Cruces Vimeo page https://vimeo.com/showcase/7284363.

The Music in the Park Series is a major component of the City’s Parks and Recreation Department event schedule each summer. Since its start in 1994, Music in the Park has become a Las Cruces tradition during the summer months, bringing the community together to enjoy family, friends, and music.  The 2022 Music in the Park Series is set to begin with live music Memorial Day Weekend.

For more information, please contact the Parks and Recreation Department at 575 541-2550.
