It’s a show – and then some.

The APS Education Foundation’s A is for Art! gala – a celebration of visual and performing arts in Albuquerque Public Schools and one of the biggest benefit events for education in New Mexico – is Saturday, Nov. 19, at Sandia Resort and Casino. We expect up to 500 people from throughout the community to revel in the talents of high school students throughout the city, all while dining on top-notch food.

A silent and live auction of about 145 pieces of APS student work will highlight the evening, with Mark Ronchetti of KRQE News 13 serving as the emcee. Five works of student art will be in the live auction, as well as the opportunity to “purchase” the Fine Arts program at West Mesa High School.

“Our stars are often found in the fine arts,” said Foundation Executive Director Phill Casaus. “And I know that people will love to see them in action.”

A variety of APS entertainers will be at the event, including Volcano Vista product Matthew Koester, among the nation’s top young saxophonists. In addition, look for vocal performances from Manzano High School.

Tickets are on sale now at www.apseducationfoundation.org. Sponsorship information also may be obtained at the Foundation’s website.
