Well-known musicians and artists will help boost the Warren Center when it debuts a new event next year — the Art of Music Gala.
The event will be Feb. 24, 2017 at the South Side Ballroom in Dallas.
The gala will feature Jeff Coffin, saxophonist for the Dave Matthews Band; Mark Watters, a six-time Emmy-winning Disney composer; Brook Wallace, a world champion fiddler, celebrity music producer Jamar Jones; and Quinn Mason, a 20-year-old classical composer.
Artists will include metal sculptors Luis and Arazeli Torres, oil and acrylic canvas artist Daniel Padilla, local wood artist Christina Yielding, fashion designer Lucy Dang, and bronze figurative sculptor Angela Mia De La Vega.
The Warren Center’s mission is to ensure that children with developmental differences or disabilities, and their families, receive the support and resources they need to reach their full potential.
The Warren Center’s headquarters is in Richardson and it has locations in Garland and Carrollton, according to its website.
For the gala, each of the musicians will compose original compositions that are inspired by the services provided by the Warren Center. Artists will create one-of-a-kind works of art based on those songs.
All of the art and music will be debuted at the gala.
