Preview: PVPA, "We Came to Play"

Majestic Theater, West Springfield, MA

The Majestic Theater will welcome students from the Pioneer Valley Performing Arts (PVPA) Charter Public School for “We Came to Play.”

Sixty students will perform in the concert, including members from the PVPA's Rock ensemble (vocalists and instrumentalists), Jazz ensemble (vocalists and instrumentalists), Pop R&B ensemble (vocalists and instrumentalists), and acapella ensemble (just vocalists). These four ensembles are audition-based and feature students in grades 9-12.

"This upcoming showcase is shaping up to be a high energy, dynamic performance,” said Charlotte Donovan, enrollment and communications coordinator at the school. “Our music department supplies spectacular training and emphasizes the importance of offering students the chance to perform for audiences outside the classroom. We strive to provide the skills needed for students to sustain their craft as they continue on as artists after high school.”

She continued, “This is what makes PVPA unique; access to professional artistic training and performance opportunities in the context of a highly supportive academic environment. For any student who is seeking an active community of peers and educators, is a lover of the arts looking for a chance to gain and deepen skills in their craft, and is looking to push themselves both inside and outside of the classroom, PVPA could be the place for them.”

Ticket prices are $20 for adults, $10 for students/seniors/veterans, and $5 for children 12 and under attending with family. Tickets can be purchased by calling the Majestic Theater Box at (413) 747-7797.
