Spring Season Ahead!

It's 2015! We hope you have all had a wonderful start to the new year and we thank you sincerely for your generous, year-end gifts, which we are happy to report have gotten us very close to this year's goal for our End of Year, Season's Pleadings Appeal! Outpost could not do what it does without this generous support from you. Every year, many people continue to give after the end of the year (in January and February of 2014 we received an additional $3,500 in "year end support"). And that's great! Why not get your 2015 tax-deductions going early? And what better way to start than with a gift to one of New Mexico's finest non-profit arts organizations! In fact, not only are we one of New Mexico's finest, but we are also proud to announce that Outpost was named among one of the World's Top Jazz Venues in Downbeat Magazine! That's right! Along with 163 other venues from around the world, Outpost was listed in Downbeat's February 2015 issue: 163 Great Jazz Venues! That makes us proud! By the way, check out our spring schedule on this site. We're putting things up as we confirm them and tickets for many shows are on sale now. They are going fast already so don't wait. Do it on line, call us, come by. We're ready to sell you tickets to some great shows! Read More »

Education Spotlight


All classes are taught by the Outpost team comprising saxophonist, Kanoa Kaluhiwa; drummer, Sharon Eldridge; trumpeter, Paul Gonzales; and our most recent addition to the teaching staff, C├ęsar Bauvallet. We aim to build positive attitudes, trust, teamwork, cooperation, confidence, compassion, and a sense of humor, everything you could ever want from music. Both Youth and Adults will perform a recital for family and friends at the end of their second session. It is expected that students will have their own instruments to bring to class. Outpost will provide a piano, a drumset, and guitar & bass amplifiers. Read More »
