Society for the Performing Arts believes that the arts are a measure of a civilized society and a catalyst for the enrichment, growth and pleasure for all citizens of that society. Society for the Performing Arts’ mandate, therefore, is to create opportunities for the discovery, development, and celebration of creative abilities in whatever form they may take.
Society for the Performing Arts brings a broad selection of performing artists and companies from around the world to complement Houston's own theater, dance, and music offerings. The goal of the organization is to present a wide range of the highest quality national and international caliber of classical performing artists and companies, ranging from traditional to contemporary, large orchestras and dance companies to recitalists and solo performers, new artists and art forms to multi-cultural attractions.
Additionally, Society for the Performing Arts seeks to provide a variety of learning experiences for adults and children and to develop bridges between the performing arts and other interests within the greater Houston community and throughout the state of Texas.
