Introducing Praeclara, a performing arts organization sponsored by Second Presbyterian Church of Little Rock

Praeclara offers an eclectic blend of opera, dance, choral, handbell, and orchestral performances. Our productions are both excellent and rare: excellent because we provide an innovative showcase for talented performing artists from around the state, and rare because Praeclara performances are designed to surprise and challenge our audiences. Praeclara events stimulate the senses, provoke thought, and start conversations. Praeclara is artistry in sound, motion, and mind.
