    Patrick Ball is one of the premier Celtic harp players in the world and a captivating spoken word artist.

    In playing the ancient, legendary brass-strung harp of Ireland with its crystalline, bell-like voice, and in performing marvelous tales of wit and enchantment, he not only brings new life to two cherished traditions, but blends them in concert to create “a richly theatrical and hauntingly beautiful performance.”

    Youth in Arts ’Til Dawn

    A Cappella music is singing without instrumental accompaniment. It means "in the style of the Sistine Chapel," where services used choirs with no instruments. As time has passed, A Cappella music has broadened its subject matter and style to include all genres of music. In this day and age A Cappella is more a choice of instrumentation, or lack thereof, rather than a style of music. Youth in Arts' A Cappella ensemble `Til Dawn will perform a mix of contemporary and classic songs from the Pop, R&B, Rock, Folk, Gospel and Jazz traditions. Depending upon questions asked, students may learn about music (chords and keys) or about arranging, but the real impact of the performance is encouraging students to pursue their own goals. `Til Dawn celebrates youth voices and the value of the arts, fostering positive messages about meaningful social issues and inspiring children of all ages.
