Colors & Chords is a one of a kind event that celebrates music and art by pairing bands with prominent local artists live onstage for a 30 minute set. Held in the historic Turner Hall Ballroom, this event merges musical craftsmanship with an individual artist’s interpretation of the music.
Each artist’s evolving canvas is projected on a massive screen behind the band, creating a dramatic sound and visual experience.
Multiple participatory art installations will be staged in the balcony, inviting audience members to actively engage in the creation of art throughout the evening. Canvases created onstage and in the balcony will be available to purchase through a silent auction.
On the main floor, goods created by our students during Islands of Brilliance workshops will be available for sale throughout the night. This includes our popular holiday greeting cards, framed art prints, and a variety of fresh t-shirt designs!
What will the money be used for?
Islands of Brilliance is raising money to build the first Early Intervention Employment Model in the country for students on the autism spectrum. This includes a dedicated facility to run workshops, offer a membership model to our community, create employment opportunities for a wide range of skills and abilities, and launch a Digital Academy focused on design, visual production, coding, and web development.
