RAHWAY—On Saturday, April 25 the UCPAC will present Boston’s original beatbox vocal pop band, Ball in the House. The afternoon will begin at 12:30 p.m., with an interactive workshop for families (registration required) followed by a public concert at 3 p.m.
Ball in the House is five guys, five voices, that’s it. A sound unlike anything you’ve heard before. Ball in the House is a tour de force of vocal sound that must be heard and seen to be believed. This Boston-based group takes a cappella to the next stage, with vocal drums/beatbox and vocal bass under their pop harmonies to create a sound that’s hard to believe. They’ve been astounding audiences nationally, both with their live shows and with their recordings (their own CDs as well as the Cool Whip radio and TV ads).
Presented as part of the UCPAC’s education program Mentors in Music and the Arts, the UCPAC invites local families, with children age 8 and older, to participate in a hands-on educational workshop with the artists of Ball in the House. The workshop will begin at 12:30 p.m. Families are welcome to register for the unique opportunity to familiarize and understand first hand the unique sounds and techniques of an a cappella vocal pop band.
The workshop will focus on creativity, emphasizing the importance of connection and communication between the artists and the participating families. The presenting artists will demonstrate the unique sounds of the “beatbox” music style, as well as introduce the participating students to the technical vocabulary of a cappella music composition.
This MIMA workshop is appropriate for families with children ages 8 and older. Registration is required. To register, or for more information, call the UCPAC Box Office at 1-732-499-8226.
