"NMSA events highlight springtime in Santa Fe..."
By Tom Maguire
Tom Maguire is a musician, arts supporter and a guy who travels the Southwest in a 13’ Scamp trailer, because he couldn’t figure out how the tent poles went together.
Let’s see – from the ArtSpring Gala to music ensembles in performance at the Lensic and New Mexico School for the Arts, theater students performing excerpts from “Romeo and Juliet” this Sunday with the Community Orchestra, “Echo Spectrum”, a showing of visual arts students’ work at VERVE Gallery of Photography and a Senior Project Presentation at Moving People Dance, there is a lot going on for everyone at NMSA this spring.

And, “Oh, by the Way”
NMSA’s academics are doing just fine, thank you very much. From the celebration of Pi day (3/14) before Spring Break in math class, replete with circular food to calculate different areas and volumes and prizes for the students who could recite pi to the most number of digits; to trips—Los Alamos with the Supercomputing Challenge Team and a Watershed Congress at El Rancho de las Golondrinas— students have been busy with a very creative approach to the strenuous academics offered at the charter school.
