Home / `Til Dawn / Happnstance Performs Benefit Concert for Youth in Arts 10/30


(L to R) Danielle, Maria and Sean of Happnstance

Just because you’re staying home on Friday nights doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy live music. Treat yourself tomorrow to the beautiful harmonies of San Francisco indie-folk band Happnstance at a virtual concert to benefit Youth in Arts.
More than 125 tickets have already been sold by Youth in Arts Board Member Janine Simerly, who is hosting the virtual concert in her Mill Valley backyard. The event lasts from 6 to 6:45 p.m. and features Sean Simerly and Maria Pougiales-Posey, two-thirds of the trio (Danielle Bezadel has moved to the East Coast). 
“I kind of describe it as a millennial Peter, Paul and Mary but with 2 Marys and one Peter/Paul,” Janine said. “I’m pretty much Happnstance’s biggest fan.”
Tickets are $25 per household. To purchase (and get the Zoom link), visit https://youthinarts.ticketleap.com/happnstance-virtual-concert-for-yia/details
Sean and Maria sang together for three years when they were part of ‘Til Dawn, Youth in Arts’ award-winning teen a cappella ensemble. Janine said that experience was one of the most formative experiences of her son’s life. Friends he made are still close friends, she said, and he considers director Austin Willacy an important friend and mentor. Both singers are also part of Still Dawn, ‘Til Dawn’s chorus of alumni singers.
All proceeds benefit Youth in Arts programs and our mission to support creative, confidence and compassion in all learners of all abilities.
