Excerpted from Volume 29, Issue 5 to carry you through early June performance events in the Albuquerque area. Subscribe to Albuquerque Community Live Art and Performance Services weekly newsletters and performance listings at website links below. I subscribe but do not always remember to repost or link. This is just one of many Albuquerque area calendars ~ a topic surely worth a post of its own, but not today. Although carrying more art exhibit and gallery openings this time (May was a heavy concert month), Qclaps is primarily performance oriented, as indicated by the name.
Local calendars tend to be more detailed and comprehensive than national or even state calendars. Few, if any, are 100% comprehensive. That means checking or subscribing to multiple calendars - and, for event organizers, listing in them. Depending on individual calendar focus (so do your homework), these area calendars, excepting ones (i.e. Duke City Fix) that are limited to Albuquerque proper, would be good places for the arts council and other Mountainair event organizers to list coming events. Concerts, exhibits, activities, Jubilee, Sunflower, and more. Don't overlook the NM Magazine and NM Tourism calendars either. Both are from NM Department of Tourism and now synced so that listing in one automatically lists in the other. Local businesses and organizations can list in the New Mexico Tourism Business Directory for free.
This part of the spring concert season offers dozens of live performances to choose among. There are also special fundraising events to fill funding gaps that all performing groups have been experiencing. Check the new Upcoming Events and Auditions & Calls sections of the newsletter and go to the website for further information on each event. Become a fan of Q CLAPS on Facebook or follow us on Twitter. Here's hoping to see you soon, live and in person,
