Splash! A Taste of the Arts is a regional wine, beer and cider tasting and food-pairing event for Academy parents, alumni/ae, and the greater community. The goal of this event is to provide funding for the support and enhancement of arts at The Albany Academies in order to attract, sustain and educate well-rounded and diverse students in the arts and prepare them for pre-professional college arts programs and all future pursuits.

Splash! A Taste of the Arts held on Saturday, November 19 brought in nearly 140 parents, alumni, alumnae, and friends of The Albany Academies. Thank you to those who joined us, purchased wish list items, volunteered on the committee and bought raffle items.
