'Music that gives a heartbeat... ' safely socially distanced in an old factory space.

[email protected] MUSIC FESTIVAL offers the expressive, authentic energy of world class live music, safely socially distanced in an old industrial space.

The festival begins April 23, 2021 at 7:00 pm with the sensual sway of Piazzolla's NUEVO TANGO music in this journey to Argentina by violinist Chee-Yun Kim, pianist Amy Yang and cellist Joseph Kuipers in the Grand Hallway of the Cotton Mill. At 8:45pm the music moves outside to the Dye-room for singer/songwriter GINNY MAC's unique accordion AMERICANA/ WESTERN SWING sound, as she invites you to two-step under the Texas sky.

April 24, 2021 at 3:00pm enjoy the unforgettable sound of the Texas Cellos #CELLOCHOIR as they perform masterpieces from Faure's Pavane to swanky BEATLES No. 1 tunes, Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah, and Audrey Hepburn's Moon River in an open factory space. At 6:00 pm the world renowned MIRO QUARTET brings the heavenly intimacy of Schubert and Boccherini cello quintets to life with artistic director cellist Joseph Kuipers in the festival finale.

A mixology cocktail class with one of Dallas's best bartenders will be offered with very limited tickets, and cocktails, wine and food trucks will be available for purchase.
