Sound + Color

Join us for an evening of music and fun to benefit heARTplay and MusicWorks! Due to capacity requirements at ARTplay, this will be a ticketed event. Instead of a set price for tickets, we are asking for a pay-what-you-can donation. Please note that each individual, all ages, will need to have a ticket for entry. 

Tickets can be found here: 

heARTplay is the scholarship program of ARTplay that provides opportunities for children in foster and kinship care to attend ARTplay classes at no cost. More info about ARTplay here:

MusicWorks is a free community youth orchestra rehearsing daily in Lexington's Northside. Modeled on Venezuela's revolutionary education movement, El Sistema, MusicWorks fosters positive youth development by providing equitable access to high quality music education. More info here:

Our musical guests for the evening:
*The Other Years (Louisville, KY)
*Julia Purcell (Louisville, KY)
*Anna Hess//Joanna James//Richard Young (Lexington, KY)
*MusicWorks student performance

Light refreshments will be available.  Rolling Oven Pizza is just a stone's throw away, so feel free to grab some food & bring it back over.

Our friends at West Sixth Brewing will be serving up some of their yummy beers and Hartfield & Co. will be on site mixing up some delicious drinks in their horse trailer turned cocktail bar!

We appreciate your help in increasing opportunities for children to engage in the arts. After we cover costs for the evening, proceeds will be split 50/50 between heARTplay + MusicWorks. We will also have a silent art auction (kid-created pieces) with the proceeds going to the programs.

Feel free to donate on site or donations can be made online here as well:
