Tonight!! On "TheMusicBox!" It's a  RADIO-A-THON to help raise funds to introduce gifted, yet under-served youth to the same world-class arts training provided at the nation's top summer arts & music programs! This is made possible, through a summer arts program called Teen Arts Program, or 'TAP!' [A partnership with the DC Jazz Festival and Hosted at Howard Univerisity]

The 3-week overnight multidisciplinary summer camp & 1 week jazz camp has become the best hidden secret and premier summer arts camp on the East Coast. This year’s ambassadors include world-renowned opera diva Denyce Graves, The Joffrey Ballet residency, Ray Mercer from Lion King, Oscar Hawkins (Kirov Ballet/Cirque Du Soleil) and 30+ additional resident artists who will teach multidisciplinary classes from Opera to Hip Hop. The icing on the cake is that the program will culminate with showcases and a Broadway style musical at the Kennedy Center accompanied by a professional chamber orchestra alongside the camp instrumentalists

Join guest co-host [and the man behind the idea to rally the financial support of fellow musicians and artists], Mr. Kevin Williams, and I, as we talk to former camp student Tariq AlSabir, who went from Hip-Hop to Opera at Peabody Conservatory on a full scholarship! We also speak to resident artist, D.C.'s award winning percussionist/composer, Victor Provost!  We can't wait to see you, as we unite to teach and help our children in any way that we can! The harvest is plenteous, but the laborers are few!
