The 2017 Art of Music Gala
The 2017 Art of Music Gala
The Friends of The Warren Center raised over $60,000 at the first annual Art of Music Gala, Synesthesia, at Southside Ballroom.
Headlining the event was three-time Grammy award winner Jeff Coffin, of the Dave Matthews Band.
The night featured the original compositions of: 10-year old aspiring actress and singer, Maya Delgado; six-time Emmy winning Disney composer Mark Watters; world champion fiddliest Brook Wallace; celebrity music producer Jamar Jones and 20-year-old classical composer Quinn Mason. The original pieces of art were created by: nationally acclaimed and award-winning oil and acrylic canvas artist Daniel Padilla; metal sculptors Luis and Arazeli Torres; local wood artist Christina Yielding; premier fashion designer Lucy Dang and bronze figurative sculptor Angela Mia De La Vega.
Each completely unique piece of art and original manuscript/recording was auctioned off live at the event, with the proceeds going directly to The Warren Center. Guests also enjoyed a VIP Reception with Jeff Coffin, a silent auction and a seated dinner with musical and art presentations.
“The Art of Music of Gala, helped change the lives of children in the Dallas area living with developmental delays and disabilities,” said Tara Null, Director of Development at The Warren Center. “This was a great opportunity to enjoy an evening of music and art where proceeds go directly to therapy services for the children we serve.”
