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

Praeclara offers unique and exemplary arts programming to Arkansas audiences. We specialize in outstanding vocal performances, including musical theatre, opera, choral masterworks, and soloist recitals. We also collaborate with other artists in the community to create performances that blend voices, instruments, and dance.


Our singers are renowned for their technical excellence as musicians and for their expressive stage presence. Whether conveying the “power and majesty” of Handel’s Messiah and Mozart’s Requiem or producing “delightfully fizzy and funny” renditions of The Music Man, The Pirates of Penzance, and Annie: The Musical, Praeclara has been praised by the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette for offering musical artistry that “truly sings and soars.”
