   TEMS PTO Welcomes Acclaimed      A Capella Group, "Ball in the House"
School Assemblies  
 Wednesday, November 15th, 2017   
12:30 p.m. - Grades 7&8
1:30 p.m. - Grades 5&6
Ball in the House is five guys, five voices, that's it.  Taking a cappella to the next stage, with vocal drums/beatbox and vocal bass under lush harmonies, they create a sound that's hard to believe.  Following in the path of classic harmony groups like Boyz II Men, The Temptations, and Take 6, while incorporating the pop and neo-soul influence of artists like Bruno Mars, Daft Punk, and Pharrell Williams, Ball in the House moves audiences with their music. With their extensive tour schedule averaging 200 dates a year, Ball in the House reaches millions. They have performed extensively in schools all around the country as well as opened for major acts and recorded the music for commercials.  Their program is jam-packed with music, entertainment and education. Ball in the House inspires students by bridging the gap between music taught in school and the popular music students hear on the radio, integrating the harmony of a cappella music into a contemporary popular format. The group is committed to being good stewards of respect, positivity, and teamwork through fun a cappella music.
Ball in the House will also be performing their full theatrical stage show for the community on Friday, November 17th at 7:00 PM at Valley Forge Middle School in a performance made possible by DELTA (Districts Educating and Learning Through the Arts) and it's member schools. Click here for the flyer and ticket information.
