Live & Wired

On Saturday, May 8, 2021, PRCS will host a live, virtual concert to provide an opportunity for local teen artists to experience playing on a professional platform in a safe, socially distanced environment. The event will be livestreamed on the Franklin Park Arts Center's YouTube channel. 

To foster a concert-like experience for the artists and virtual audience, the number of acts is limited to 20 within two performance areas at the Arts Center. One area will have access to a full drum kit and space to accommodate larger groups. The smaller area without access to a drum set is suitable for acoustic acts, soloists, etc. Acts are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis, limited to ten large groups (no more than eight members) and ten small acts. A wait list for additional acts will be created, if submissions exceed capacity. Performers will receive advance notice of arrival and performance time, performance location and stage plot. 

The following event restrictions are in accordance with the Forward Virginia COVID-19 guidelines:

  • Performance group size will be limited to eight individuals.
  • Performers will be required to wear face coverings at all times. 
  • Stage plots will be predetermined by staff and are non-negotiable. 
  • No audience members will be allowed in the center, including parents and guardians.

We are currently seeking artists to perform for this live event! Anyone interested in participating must complete the online submission form. Registration closes at 5 p.m. on March 16, 2021. Email YAC with any questions.
