We're thrilled to announce a very special event, The Friends of The Warren Center's Art of Music Gala, taking place right here in Dallas this Friday, Feb. 24. South Side Ballroom will host the one of a kind experience, a night of celebration and performance featuring original compositions inspired by the services provided to children of The Warren Center. This local charity with headquarters in both Richardson and Garland assists parents for their children's physical and intellectual therapy and developmental growth. During the one-night gala, each musical work created will be presented in collaboration with five visual artists, creating works of art inspired by each music piece on-site. These works will be unveiled and performed simultaneously for the first time at the Gala this weekend. Headlining the event is three-time Grammy award winner Jeff Coffin, of the Dave Matthews Band. “This is a great opportunity to enjoy an evening of music and art where proceeds go directly to therapy services for the children we serve," said Tara Null, Director of Development at The Warren Center. The Warren Center has enlisted the help of a talented 10-year old aspiring actress/singer Maya Delgado to open the Art of Music Gala with a special song, written for the children of the Center. The little lady is no stranger to the stage, with experience performing at the American Airlines Center, House of Blues Dallas, Winspear Opera House and Six Flags Over Texas. In 2016 Maya herself founded “HeARTS of Maya,” a nonprofit organization that provides educational scholarships to underserved children who have a passion for the arts. Original compositions will be performed by Emmy-winning Disney composer Mark Watters, world champion fiddliest Brook Wallace, celebrity music producer Jamar Jones and 20-year-old classical composer Quinn Mason. Artists Daniel Padilla, Luis and Arazeli Torres, Christina Yielding, Angela Mia De La Vega and our very own premier fashion designer Lucy Dang will collaborate with the musical artists for this one-night event. Proceeds from the live auction will benefit The Warren Center. To learn more about The Art of Music Gala, purchase tickets at www.theartofmusicgala.com. Image 1 HD Wallpaper Rocks.
