A Musical Revue




1 pm - 3 pm

Over the past five months, seniors participating in BAC’s SPARC program with artist Krystal Grant at Wayside Tompkins Park Senior Center have rehearsed songs from Fiddler on the Roof, Porgy and Bess, and West Side Story and performed poetry by Langston Hughes and Nikki Giovanni.

They are excited to present Flow the Days: A Musical Revue that incorporates their memories to follow the life of a woman from infancy to marriage and motherhood. The performance includes jazz standards integrated with Broadway songs to create a charming show that audiences of all ages can enjoy. 

SPARC is a collaboration among the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, the Department for the Aging and the City's five local arts councils situated in each borough – Brooklyn Arts Council, Bronx Council on the Arts, Council on the Arts and Humanities of Staten Island, Lower Manhattan Cultural Council and Queens Council on the Arts. It was developed as part of Age-Friendly NYC, a citywide effort to make the City more livable for seniors, and previously ran in 2011-2012 after a successful pilot called Space for Art in 2009.  The 2012-2013 SPARC program is supported, in part, by public funds from the Department for the Aging.
