An elegant evening of music, art, and fundraising.
Moonlight and Ivory was held on Saturday, November 4, 2023 as we celebrated 25 years. Yes, Moonlight and Ivory used to be held in February, however scheduling, performer availability, and conflicts with other events, make November a wonderful time of year for this event. We hope most who enjoy this much loved Annual Event like the change. Our 2024 event will be the first Saturday of November, 2024.
Moonlight and Ivory is one of HACA’s signature events that helps raise funds for our many other programs, including the Spotlight on Talent scholarships.
Each year, adult musicians and artists from Dade City, Zephyrhills, Wesley Chapel, and surrounding areas offer a variety of music which is always impressive and includes vocal and instrumental renditions of show tunes, classics, contemporary, jazz, bluegrass, sacred, and original pieces by adult performers of all ages.
Many of the performers are or have been professional and some are up-and-coming, but all are accomplished musicians. Part of the event is a wonderful art show with contributions by local artists in a wide variety of media. Both shows are made complete by delectable gourmet refreshments and desserts served at intermission.
As a result of the community support of this event, we are able to offer an annual $1,000 Pasco Heritage Scholarship for performing arts to be awarded to a graduating high school senior from Pasco County. We also offer each year a $1,000 Nereim Fine Arts Award for a Pasco County graduating senior talented in the visual arts.
Thank you to all who attended our shows in the past. We have had very successful events and raised needed funds to support our other programs, including the Spotlight on Talent scholarships that are for our school age competitors. We are grateful to our, sponsors and patrons. We hope to see you each year.
