On Friday, May 10, the New Mexico School for the Arts presents its end-of-year gala, ArtSpring 2013. The party gets started at 5 p.m. at the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum Education Annex (123 Grant Ave.) with an exhibition of artwork by NMSA students. The movable fete then heads to the Eldorado Hotel & Spa (309 W. San Francisco St.) at 5:30 p.m. for a wine-and- hors-d’oeuvres reception. At 7 p.m., theater, dance, and music students perform at the Lensic Performing Arts Center (211 W. San Francisco St). Expect some stellar surprises. For instance, the school has been granted rights allowing its dance students to perform excerpts from George Balanchine’s Serenade. Music students perform pop-, rock-, and hip-hop-drenched versions of classical music mainstays. There will also be a short live auction at the Lensic that evening. How about a trip to Paris — or an evening of food, cocktails, and conversation with inimitable screen legend Shirley MacLaine? Tickets are $100 per person (includes all events plus preferred seating). Preferred-seating tickets for the performance are $50. There are also $15 seats available for the performance only, without preferred seating. (Another performance takes place on Saturday, May 11.) Tickets are available by calling 988-1234 and from www.ticketssantafe.org. All proceeds go toward scholarships. Call 982-6124 for more information.
