Founded in 1966, we love that the Society for the Performing Arts (SPA) is the largest independent non-profit presenting organization in the Southwest. Since its inception, SPA has sponsored more than 850 performances of the world’s finest music, dance and theater events, in adherence to the belief that the arts are fundamental to the overall enrichment and quality of life within the community. In addition to presenting artists, SPA seeks to provide a variety of learning experiences for adults and children through master classes, lectures and special student performances, as well as build relationships between the performing arts and other interests within the greater Houston area and throughout the state of Texas.
Chairs Mary Ann and David McKeithan created a magically romantic evening with a Tuscan flair. SPA took this opportunity to honor Board Member, Margret Alkek Williams, for her loyal and steadfast support of SPA and the Houston performing arts scene. Guests enjoyed a delicious Italian inspired dinner by famed caterer Jackson Hicks of Jackson & Co., while the Sicilian Tenors serenaded guests with classic Italian songs in their trademark velvet voices.
