It's hard to imagine going bigger than Handel's "Messiah," but for El Paso Pro-Musica, it was only the beginning. Since its first, Hallelujah-filled concert in 1977, the organization has brought renowned artists from around the world to the El Paso and Las Cruces communities?and, thanks to NPR's live broadcasts of the their annual chamber music festival, to listeners across the country. Current Artistic Director Zuill Bailey calls on his globe-trotting career as a concert cellist and his impressive musical education to lead both the company's artistic arm and its ambitious outreach efforts, which include musical "informances," pre-concert talks, master classes, and a willingness to patiently explain the difference between violins and violas hundreds of times over.
Dr. Richard Nevins is a certified optometrist helping oglers observe and oscillate in comfort. During the approximately 20-minute Latisse-treatment consultation, Dr. Nevins will evaluate a patient's suitability for Latisse, an FDA-approved treatment that lengthens lashes with a regimen of eyelash drops, encouraging the growth of darker, fuller lashes and assisting in lifelong attempts at flight. For patrons with dry, itchy eyes, the dry-eye screening provides treatment recommendations to help find relief. With the promise of glamorous lashes or smooth-swiveling orbs, motivated oculars can take in Dr. Nevins’s Elvis-themed decorations, admiring reflections in gold-plated records and plotting ways to filch white-winged suits.
