Its the highlight of the year for the non-profit School of the Performing Arts in the Richmond Community SPARC: the annual summer Live Art concert featuring some 200 area students performing alongside some of musics biggest names for a packed house. The show usually sells out, but now viewers at home will get a chance to check it out with the airing of SPARCs 2018 Live Art: Love documentary on Thursday, April 25 at 9 p.m. on WCVE/WHTJ PBS. The documentary is being offered to PBS stations nationwide through American Public Television. It will also air on April 28 at 7 p.m. on WVPT PBS. The stars that year included: Jason Mraz, Josh Groban, Sara Bareilles, Michael McDonald and Rene Marie. Local artists who donated their time include Daniel Clarke, Steve Bassett, Desiree Roots, and Susan Greenbaum.SPARCs year-long Live Art program provides a variety of performing arts and visual arts classes for youth with and without disabilities. In Live Art, hundreds of students, whether typically developing or with disabilities, are all being challenged in new ways, says Erin Thomas-Foley, the creator and director of Live Art and SPARCs senior director of education in a press release. This program is about bringing people together, understanding and embracing our differences, and building a community that radiates love and support for all.We often find that what first attracts our audience is our talented and generous guest artists, explained SPARC Executive Director Ryan Ripperton in the release. But over the course of the performance, its the students who truly melt the hearts of the audience. For our students, the fact that world-class guest artists want to perform with them, a 3,600-seat theater gets filled to see them, and now TV audiences across the country will be tuning in all just goes to confirm that they, too, are stars.
There is a slight possibility that there is someone, somewhere, as full of youthful enthusiasm and deep history as Maceo Parker, but dont bet on it.The 76-year old multi-saxophonist was present at the creation of funk, as a member of James Browns tightly disciplined 1960s band. He also played in arguably the peak ecstasy iteration of George Clintons wildly imaginative Parliament/Funkadelic. Hes collaborated with Prince, and countless others and led his bands for decades. But in Richmond on April 27, hes channeling another soul hero, fronting the Ray Charles Orchestra and the Raelettes at the University of Richmonds Modlin Center.It all started with a rhyme. Parker was one of several saxophonists Brown took to a radio station to work out the classic Papas Got a Brand New Bag. Improvising lyrics over the groove, Brown hit upon the line just want you to blow/Maceo. More than a half-century later, Parker is still a bit amazed. Thats what started everything, Parker says. As his music went around the world, so did Maceo. It opened a lot of doors for me. And if it aint broke, dont fix it.If Brown demanded precision from his players, Clinton was the freewheeling opposite. Whatever happens, happens. He loved it, whatever it is. Give me some more. Once before a show, he found a new long wig, took off everything but his shorts and t-shirt, wrapped a tablecloth around himself and said, Lets go.In that era, a highlight of the show was the landing of the Mothership, a UFO model that swooped over the audience on a wire and then dropped full size from behind a curtain on the stage. People would go crazy, Parker remembers. After playing with such strong personalities, Parker struck out on his own. At one point, he considered a high concept approach.I thought Maceo Parker Plays Charlie Parker would look good on a marquee, he says. But I realized that might not be a such a good idea. Maybe somebody who plays jazz better than me, and was willing to woodshed, woodshed, woodshed practice. I am not much into that jazzy stuff. Ive seen guys who can figure out how to be someone else. I had to figure out how to be me. And decades later, he is leading the band formed by a man he first met as a starstruck young sideman. I saw Ray Charles two or three times in college, Parker says. He was everything to us. I never thought I would work with the Ray Charles Orchestra as the man himself. Once, when I was in Europe with James Brown, Ray Charles was there too, and he allowed me to come onstage and play sax solos for some reason. I was always real crazy about him and the fact that I was in his dressing room, just he and I, and I am babbling away, but trying not to take too much of his time. It was like, golly boy, I wish someone could take a picture. That was one of the highest honors ever bestowed on me.Parker continues: I said, I heard about how good your hearing is, that you can tell if someone is a little sharp or flat. And he started laughing and said, I bet you told your sax, mother, you better play well tonight And his head went way back, and his mouth was open, just like in all the pictures you see. I was in heaven.Now he is in front of Ray Charles band doing Ray Charles stuff. I love it. I did an album called Its All About Love. Thats what the world needs. Everybody can end up doing what they love to do, every, everybody, there is no hate. Hate means there is rejection somewhere. But if what you do brings a smile to other people, thats love.Everybody thinks their religion is right. But suppose when its all said and done, when the Master comes down, it all comes down to how many times you said love verses how many times you said hate Suppose it is as simple as that. Just love vs. hate.Hes laughing as he says this, not because it is funny, but because it is joyfully, seriously true. I cant help it, Parker confides. I was born on Valentines Day.Its All About Love starring Maceo Parker and featuring the Maceo Parker Big Band takes place on Saturday, April 27 at 7:30 p.m. at the Alice Jepson Theatre in the Modlin Center for the Arts at University of Richmond. $60.
ARIES March 21-April 19 In the U.S., the day after Thanksgiving typically features a spectacular shopping orgy. On Black Friday, stores sell their products at steep discounts and consumers spend their money extravagantly. But the creators of the game Cards Against Humanity have consistently satirized the tradition. In 2013, for example, they staged a Black Friday anti-sale, for which they raised their prices. The coming weeks will be a favorable time for you to try something similar. Is it possible youre undercharging for your products and services and skills If so, consider asking for more. Reassess your true worth and seek appropriate rewards.TAURUS April 20-May 20Whether or not you believe in magic, magic believes in you right now. Will you take advantage of the fancy gifts it has to offer I guess its possible that youre not interested in seeing deeper into the secret hearts of those you care for. Maybe youll go ho-hum when shown how to recognize a half-hidden opportunity that could bring vitalizing changes. And you may think its not very practical to romance the fire and the water at the same time. But if youre interested, all that good stuff will be available for you. P.S. To maximize the effects of the magic, believe in it. GEMINI May 21-June 20 In 1815, the most ferocious volcanic eruption in human history exploded from Mount Tambora in whats now known as Indonesia. It flung gas and ash all over the planet, causing weird weather for three years. Sunlight dimmed, temperatures plummeted, skies were tumultuous, and intense storms proliferated. Yet these conditions ignited the imagination of author Mary Shelley, inspiring her to write what was to become her most notable work, Frankenstein. I suspect that you, too, will ultimately generate at least one productive marvel in response to the unusual events of the coming weeks.CANCER June 21-July 22For over 40 years, Cancerian musician Carlos Santana has made music that blends rock and roll with Latin and African rhythms. In the early years, his creations sold well, but by the mid-1980s his commercial success declined. For a decade, he floundered. His fortunes began to improve after a spectacular meditation session. Santana says he was contacted by the archangel Metatron, who told him how to generate material for a new album. The result was Supernatural, which sold 30 million copies and won nine Grammy Awards. I mention this, Cancerian, because I suspect that you could soon experience a more modest but still rousing variation of Santanas visitation. Are you interested If so, the next seven weeks will be a good time to seek it outand be very receptive to its possibility.LEO July 23-Aug. 22Expergefactor is an old English word that has fallen out of use. In its original sense, it meant something that wakes you up, like an alarm clock or thunderstorm or your partners snoring. But I want to revive expergefactor and expand its meaning. In its new version, it will refer to an exciting possibility or beloved goal that consistently motivates you to spring out of bed in the morning and get your day started. Your expergefactor could be an adventure youre planning or a masterpiece youre working on or a relationship that fills you with curiosity and enchantment. In my astrological opinion, the coming weeks will be an excellent time to identify and fine-tune an expergefactor that will serve you well for a long time.VIRGO Aug. 23-Sept. 22We live in a cultural moment when satire, sarcasm, cynicism, and irony are prized as supreme emblems of intelligence. If you say that you value sincerity and earnestness, you risk being considered naive and unsophisticated. Nevertheless, the current astrological omens suggest that you will generate good fortune for yourself in the coming weeks by making liberal use of sincerity and earnestness. So please try not to fall into the easy trap of relying on satire, sarcasm, cynicism, and irony to express yourself. As much as is practical, be kindly frank and compassionately truthful and empathetically genuine. P.S. Its a strategy that will serve your selfish aims quite well.LIBRA Sept. 23-Oct. 22Most people dont find their creativity, mourned Libran author Truman Capote. There are more unsung geniuses that dont even know they have great talent. If that describes you even a little bit, Im happy to let you know that youre close to stumbling upon events and insights that could change that. If you respond to the prompts of these unexpected openings, you will rouse a partially dormant aspect of your genius, as well as a half-inert stash of creativity and a semi-latent cache of imaginativity.SCORPIO Oct. 23-Nov. 21Do you know the word sfumato Its literal meaning in Italian is smoked. When used to describe a painting, it refers to blurred borders between objects or fuzzy transitions between areas of different colors. All the forms are soft and hazy. I bring this to your attention because I suspect the coming weeks will be a sfumato-like time for you. You may find it a challenge to make precise distinctions. Future and past may overlap, as well as beginnings and endings. That doesnt have to be a problem as long as youre willing to go with the amorphous flow. In fact, it could even be pleasurable and useful. You might be able to connect with influences from which youve previously been shut off. You could blend your energies together better with people whove been unavailable.SAGITTARIUS Nov. 22-Dec. 21You have a right to experiment with your life, declared author Anas Nin. I agree. You dont necessarily have to be what you started out to be. You can change your mind about goals that you may at one time have thought were permanent. I suspect you could be at one of these pivot points right now, Sagittarius. Are there any experiments youd like to try If so, keep in mind this further counsel from Nin. Its possible you will make mistakes. And they are right, too.CAPRICORN Dec. 22-Jan. 19You have one main task to accomplish in the coming weeks, Capricorn. Itll be simple and natural if you devote yourself to it wholeheartedly. The only way it could possibly become complicated and challenging is if you allow your focus to be diffused by less important matters. Ready for your assignment Its articulated in this poem by Rupi Kaur: bloom beautifully / dangerously / loudly / bloom softly / however you need / just bloom.AQUARIUS Jan. 20-Feb. 18When the forces of the Roman empire occupied the British Isles from the years 43 to 410, they built 2,000 miles of roads. Their methods were sophisticated. Thats why few new roads were built in England until the eighteenth century, and many of the same paths are still visible and available today. In this spirit, and in accordance with astrological omens, I recommend that you make good use of an old system or network in the coming weeks. This is one time when the past has blessings to offer the future.PISCES Feb. 19-March 20 Im not enigmatic and intriguing enough, writes a Piscean blogger named RiddleMaster. I really must work harder. Maybe Ill start wearing ankle-length black leather coats, billowing silk scarves imprinted with alchemical symbols, and wide-brimmed hats. Ill listen to Cambodian folk songs and read rare books in ancient Sanskrit. When someone dares to speak to me, Ill utter cryptic declarations like, The prophecies will be fulfilled soon enough. I understand RiddleMasters feelings. You Pisceans need mystery almost as much as you need food. But I believe you should set aside that drive for a few weeks. The time has come for you to show the world who you are with crisp candor.
Firehouses Animal Control explores justice and compassion through a dog dispute. Ever notice how pets sometimes resemble their owners It turns out theres some science behind the notion. According to a study published in the journal Psychological Science, when 45 dogs and their owners were photographed separately and paired with the photo of another dog, other people were able to match the correct dog with its owner at an above-chance rate if the dog was a purebred. Perhaps, some theorize, theres an unconscious comfort to owning animals that share your familys physical traits.Even for those who dont resemble the animals they own, its still common to see pets as a reflection of ourselves. Its this connection between man and beast that local actor Chandler Hubbard asks us to examine with his new play Animal Control at the Firehouse Theatre.Kim Donna Marie Miller is in a bind. With the unexpected death of her boss, shes been thrust into running the Carson County Pound, fielding animal-control calls, dealing with an insubordinate staff and putting down the occasional dog either for space or behavioral concerns. The stress of her situation is amplified when a conflict at a dog park suddenly becomes hers to mediate.Days earlier, a scuffle at the park led to a dog requiring medical attention, and now the stressed, no-nonsense Kim must reluctantly serve as judge. Marc Adam Turck, a dandyish clotheshorse whose golden-doodle Winnie was injured in the altercation, wants action taken against the offending dog. Dan Arik Cullen, the owner of a mutt named Bailey, protests, saying his dog has had a tough life and that hes doing the best he can. Like the dog he owns, Dan is an imposing presence, seemingly prone to violence and sporting a scar on his face.While Marc and Dans neighbor Patty Lucretia Marie Anderson argue that Bailey is a menace and demand justice, Kim herself has a connection to the dog -- shes the one who rescued Bailey from a dogfighting ring and saved him from being put down. His behavioral issues and overexcitability stem from the abuse he sustained earlier in life, perhaps another parallel with his owner. As the conflict wears on between Marc and Dan, the altercation flirts with becoming physical.Against Phil Hayes realistic, run-down set that jointly serves as a break room for the pound and Kims office, the play is a bit laborious in its exposition, with the first two acts begging to be condensed into one. Still, it comes to a riveting climax in its final act, and Hubbards exploration of justice and compassion is a thought provoking one. At times you side with each character, and the shows rough parallels with the justice system the scenes are titled The Prosecution, The Defense and The Verdict are intriguing as well.Under Joel Bassins direction, the cast does great work all around, but the script could use a little polish. In particular, the early squabbles between Kim and pound staffer Corrine played by a feistily appealing Journey Entzminger could be trimmed, and their connection to human issues of justice and mercy could be beefed up.Overall, the show is successful in its aims, and gets at one of our biggest differences from the dogs we love: our ability for compassion and understanding of our fellow man.Animal Control plays through May 12 at the Firehouse Theatre, 1609 W. Broad St. For information, visit firehousetheatre.org or call 355-2001.
