Tickets go on sale Monday, March 20th at 10am
The New Mexico Music Commission Foundation will launch the Platinum Music Awards on Friday, July 21, 2017, at the Lensic Performing Arts Center, in Santa Fe. In addition to honoring six major music figures, some of New Mexico’s best and most diverse musical talent will perform in this unique musical variety show.
The Platinum Music Awards are an evolution of the New Mexico Music Commission’s Platinum Achievement Awards—given to musicians, music supporters, and music organizations or businesses that have demonstrated the highest level of achievement and have contributed significantly to the musical culture of New Mexico. This evolution of the Platinum’s brings a new high-profile event to New Mexico, and shows overdue respect and appreciation to our state’s pioneering musical artists, from across all musical genres.
The Platinum Music Awards are also a benefit for the humanitarian work of the Solace Crisis Treatment Center and the Music in Schools programs of the New Mexico Music Commission.
