  • Because "Motown the Musical" is in town and two Houstonians are in the show in prominent roles, the city of Houston and the mayor recognized the Houstonians -- two HSPVA Vocal Music Dept. alumni:
    Ashley Tamar Davis - class of 1998
    Jarvis M. Manning, Jr. - class of 2005

    At the city council meeting, July 21, 2015 was declared Ashley Tamar Davis Day and Jarvis B. Manning, Jr. Day in Houston. Both were presented with written Proclamations. Parents and friends were in attendance.

    The show is an absolute smashing display of 60s, 70s and 80s music and dance and the audience was not shy about singing along on those familiar songs.
