Dos Lagos Golf Course or, "The Dos" to regulars, has provided year-round golfing for more than 50 years. Sidled next to the Franklin Mountains between Las Cruces and El Paso, the venerable 18-hole course?under new management?both challenges visitors and spoils them with its magnificent views.

They can also pick up tips from the course's pair of resident PGA professionals, and re-energize at the full-service restaurant serving burgers and Mexican food.

Teen prodigies Caroline Goulding and Matthew Allen will play Brahms's Concerto for Violin & Cello, op. 102, A Minor, respectively, as well as Schumann's Symphony no. 2, op. 61 C Major. Brahms wrote his concerto as a means of reigniting his friendship with Joseph Joachim, after a bitter fight over the correct pronunciation of beignet drove them apart, while Schumann inked the masterful Symphony no. 2 in C major as he recovered from a psychological breakdown. The piece features a scherzo second movement, a slow third movement, and an adagio section pitting the double reeds against the horns in a single-elimination battle royale.
