What is Lights Across The Sky?

When you look outside at night, what is the one thing you can see when you look up? It's the stars in the sky. It gives us proof of life! It is the one thing no matter your financial status, race, gender, religion, or even country that unites us around the world as one. 

The best thing is that no star is the same and no person is the same. However, at the end of the day we all have the same purpose and goal in life and that is to be able to wake up the next day shining and looking forward to something to put a smile on our face.


Lights Across the Sky is a program that was established to bring people together through music, raffles, and joy. The one day event will include a concert, holiday toy drive for impoverished youth and families , and an entertaining drumline showcase. This will allow people to come together and not worry about anything except having a joyful and fun time as one during the holidays, united like the sky full of stars.

More Information Pertaining To Concert & Toy Drive Coming Soon

DBA Academy of Arts & Development focuses on the culture of arts alongside our development programs. During our Lights Across The Sky Festival we will be hosting a first of its kind event for Harrisburg City!

We will be inviting youth and adult community and school drumlines from across the US to come and compete at a friendly and competitive Drumline Competition. We will have judges from some of the most prestigious colleges and university marching bands, alongside special guest judges and attendees. 

Each drumline will have a maximum of 5 minutes to display a musically inclined performance while being judged on musicality, showmanship, creativity, crowd reaction, and more.

Teams will be split in two categories:

  • School age: Participants that are currently in kindergarten through 12th grade

  • ​Open: Participants that have graduated out of high school
