  • Great Vegas events

    Last year, the bottom almost fell out of a big mariachi conference for youth when, just three weeks before it was scheduled to begin, organizers discovered that Santa Fe would not be able to host the event. So Memorial Middle School band director Martin Sena, a skilled mariachi performer in his own right, volunteered to bring it all to Las Vegas. The result was a rousing success.

  • Work of Art: As easy as falling off a pie

    Only a couple of weeks away from spring, we’ve gotten restless, tired of checking the weather reports to discover whether traffic’s stuck in Glorieta Pass.
