Music and Dancing to Skyrocket!


Join us for an extraordinary evening celebrating Society for Performing Arts, now in its 50th season! We are thrilled to honor Marc and Brenda Watts, as well as recognize SPA’s Education and Community Engagement programs and their efforts in providing supplemental arts education to Houston area schools and community centers.

The evening will feature a gourmet dinner, silent and live auction, special entertainment celebrating SPA’s 50-year history, and dancing to the sounds of Skyrocket!

Proceeds of the Gala enable SPA to sustain its mission of Bringing the World’s Best to Houston and to support SPA’s Education and Community Engagement Programs, which provide over 70,000 students, teachers, and parents access to the best in the performing arts in unique and affordable ways.
