Back to school - for the arts


March 12, 2000|By Sloane Brown

You never saw so many "students" so happy to be back in school. Only these were grown-ups -- supporters of the Baltimore School for the Arts -- getting together for the school's annual fund-raiser, "Expressions 2000." First came an evening "class" in theater, music or art, then dinner in the school's ballroom, followed by a performance by past and current students.

Although everyone wore a name tag, it wasn't hard to recognize many of Baltimore's movers and shakers in this student population of 450, including: Erin and Doug Becker, event co-chairs; Amy Elias and Sally Michel, past chairs; Clair Zamoiski Segal, school board chair; Sharon Nevins and Jim Dale, board members; Stanley Romanstein, school director; Leslie Shepard, dean of arts; Claire Ingalls, Towson University music educator; former Mayor Kurt Schmoke, partner with Wilmer, Cutler & Pickering; Ron Daniel, Baltimore police commissioner; and Martha Macks, president of Goya Girl Press.

The back-to-school shindig raised $110,000 for the school.
