SPARC'ling Evening of Song Set for Oct. 25


SUMMIT, NJ - SPARC’ling Evening of Song, an elegant evening of vocal performances from Summit High School (SHS) Alumni and staff, will be held October 25, from 7:30 - 10:30 p.m., at The Beacon Hill Club.   

The past four years, SPARC has hosted an evening of musical entertainment that rivals a Broadway Cabaret show.  Former SHS students, who are continuing their studies and/or professional careers in music, treat the audience to a private evening of song.  Their desire to return and "pay it forward" serves as testament to the Summit Public School district’s performing arts programs and its leadership. 
This year, Tony-nominated Walter Willison, Master of Ceremonies, will guide the audience through an elegant, adult-only evening of vocal performances by SHS alumni & faculty.  The evening also features a traditional Silent Auction, and a “Reverse Auction,” which is a unique live auction where opening bids start high, and then progress backwards in incremental levels.  Over the years, donations raised through the Reverse Auction have enabled SPARC to fund microphone purchases at the high school, Musical Rights to productions at both the high school and Lawton C. Johnson Summit Middle School, as well as Forensics workshops at the high school.
Tickets are $85 per person, and include hors d'oeuvres & adult refreshments.  Guests are asked to wear cocktail attire.  To purchase tickets, visit, or send a check/donation, payable to SPARC, c/o Lucy Thompson, 28 Waldron Avenue, Summit, NJ, 07901.

The Summit Performing Arts Resource Committee (SPARC) is a non-profit,  parent volunteer organization that provides advocacy, education initiatives, and financial support for performing arts programs in all Summit public schools.  Since its inception in 1996, SPARC's goal is to expose students to the performing arts to foster a lifelong interest in theater, music, and art.
The Beacon Hill Club is located at 250 Hobart Avenue.
