Ars Gratia Populi (Latin for "art for the people's sake") is a vocal ensemble founded in 2023 by All-Ireland champion singer Kevin Elam to explore the interplay between art music and folk music in an acapella setting. The group's name, which is a play on the well-known maxim ars gratia artis ("art for art's sake"), represents their view that art derives its meaning not from itself, but from the positive reaction it can create in the human mind and soul. By combining the technical excellence of a chamber choir with the relaxed, accessible presentation of a folk group, Ars Gratia Populi seeks to foster just such a reaction in their audiences, and inspire them to treasure the unaccompanied voice as a unique means of human expression.
