This is a watershed season for NMPAS and, with your help, we can grow our potential even more. The performing arts have the unique ability to create a greater sense of community through collaboration. We are therefore particularly excited at the number of new opportunities for NMPAS to work with other performing arts organizations and non-profits that share our passion to educate, inspire and create real change for the better here in New Mexico. In that spirit, we’d like to share opportunities for you to become part of this exciting movement:

  • Internships in arts management
  • Marketing and social media outreach
  • Photography and videography
  • Stage management at concerts and other events
  • The NMPAS governing board has voted to expand our capacity and welcomes inquiries.

For more information please contact us at 505-474-4513 or send an email to:

A Yamaha grand piano was donated to NMPAS in May 2013 by Stewart Mittnacht. The instrument belonged to his wife, Mary Shoemaker Mittnacht. Our piano resides in the Immaculate Heart of Mary Chapel in Santa Fe. It is available for use in the Chapel Series, by the New Mexico Bach Society, and may be rented by other music organizations. NMPAS includes the Chapel Series at Immaculate Heart, The New Mexico Bach Society, and Santa Fe Flute Immersion.

For NMPAS and all nonprofit arts organizations, community support is vital to ongoing programming and the fulfillment of our Mission. Please join the many people who already support NMPAS by making a tax-deductible donation. The New Mexico Performing Arts Society is a 501(c)(3) organization. Donations to NMPAS are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.

Our sincere thanks go to the many donors, business partners, foundations and public funding organizations that have already contributed to NMPAS!
