5 pm - 7 pm

The St. Charles Jubilee Senior Center’s Ukulele Orchestra led by SPARC artist Khabu Young is proud to perform at Jalopy Theater in Red Hook. In their 2nd year of existence and following a recent performance 'tour' around Brooklyn, these seniors will debut original songs, plus favorite classics from the Great American Songbook. Reception with light refreshments to follow.


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.
