DCCA Presents VoicePlay


From January 20 through 23, local high school students will learn about vocal techniques and methods from VoicePlay, a unique a cappella group that started as a street corner barbershop act before winning national acclaim with their appearances on NBC's The Sing-off and subsequently touring internationally. Part of Darke County Center for the Arts' Arts In Education series, the programs by VoicePlay will be presented in each local school district at no charge to students and are free and open to the public. “These five guys are incredibly creative and can do amazing things with their voices which span 5 octaves, ” said DCCA Artistic Director Keith Rawlins. “We know that the students will be thrilled and inspired by this show,” Rawlins stated.

VoicePlay will also perform in concert on Saturday, January 23 at Henry St. Clair Memorial Hall in Greenville as part of DCCA's Artists Series. The group creates the orchestrated sound of an entire musical production using nothing but the human voice; their varied repertoire spans genres and eras and according to Mr. Rawlins appeals to audiences of all ages. “Their act includes inventive and often hilarious on-stage theatrics as well as the vocal gymnastics which have made them famous,” Rawlins concluded.

DCCA's Arts In Education program that annually presents high-quality artists to students in all grade levels in Darke County and Greenville City schools is sponsored by Gordon Orthodontics, Target, DP&L Company Foundation, Greenville Federal, Maid-Rite Sandwich Shoppe, Edison State Community College, Darke Rural Electric Trust, Richard Baker, BASF, and Littman-Thomas Agency, the Mandy Green Fund of the Darke County Foundation, and the Helen Hawkey Music Project. Additionally, the Ohio Arts Council helped fund this program with state tax dollars to encourage economic growth, educational excellence and cultural enrichment for all Ohioans; the A.I.E. program is also funded by DCCA memberships and the local schools. DCCA also receives operating support from the Harry D. and Esther Stephens Memorial as well as funding from the Ketrow Foundation and Lydia E. Schaurer Memorial Trust Fund.

Tickets for the January 23rd VoicePlay show at St. Clair Memorial Hall cost $20 (half-price for students) and can be purchased at the DCCA office located in Greenville Public Library as well as on-line at www.CenterForArts.net; if any remain by showtime, tickets will also be available at the door. A.I.E. programs are scheduled in cooperation with the schools; for more information, contact DCCA at 937-547-0908 or dcca@centerforarts.net.
