On Sunday, December 22nd, SPARC (School of Performing Arts for the Richmond Community) presented LIVE ART: Tree of Life at the Landmark Theater. The event featured performances by Jason Mraz – a SPARC alumni, Christina Perri, k.d. lang, and others, accompanied by nearly 200 student performers from SPARC.
In its second year, the groundbreaking program offers students, including those with and without special needs, the opportunity to perform with major artists, showing off the hard work they’ve put in throughout the year in SPARC’s various educational programs. The performances were a mixed media of live music, dance, art and puppetry, with many students performing across the board. The enthusiasm and passion of the students and the performers alike were truly inspiring, a perfect show for the Holiday season.
