Join us October 2, 2021 at Amador LIVE for "A Night of Celebration"! New Mexico Advocates for the Arts' first Annual Noche de Gala will feature performances from our three programs, Las Cruces International Mariachi Conference, Camerata del Sol, and Las Cruces Youth Orchestras & Choirs. Attendees will also enjoy dinner, dancing, and bidding on our wonderful silent auction.
Gala proceeds will support New Mexico Advocates for the Arts' mission to promote, preserve and fulfill the cultural needs of the community through multidisciplinary educational programming, exhibitions, activities, and performances in the music, dance, theatrical, visual, and literary arts.
We would like to give a special "Thank You" to Amador LIVE for hosting our gala, to our performers, and Kate Bieri for being our Master of Ceremonies.
