Presenting a concert and art auction for the benefit of the Schott Communities, sponsored by the Archbishop Ambrose DePaoli Assembly No. 3218 - a 4th degree chapter of the Knights of Columbus.
The Friday and Saturday evening event includes an entertaining combination of a silent art auction, a wine garden, food and beverages and a live music concert.
As an extension of the ministry of the Archdiocese of Miami, Schott Communities is focused on providing for the needs of persons who are deaf or who are physically or intellectually challenged in South Florida. All proceeds from the event will go to this worthy charity.
“Schott Communities, founded with the belief that every person has the right to be treated with dignity and care, is dedicated to providing life-enriching programs, services and residences to meet the multiple needs of persons who are deaf or disabled.”
The Vision and Mission of Schott Communities are rooted in the sacred belief that God gifts each human person with dignity and goodness; that the worth of the person lies not in one’s productivity but in one’s ability to offer and receive love.
The Schott Communities envisions a caring community that welcomes while it challenges persons who are deaf or disabled to enjoy full and contributive lives. This vision is reflective of the agency’s belief in God’s care for each person, and the responsibility to give visible expression to that care.
Members of Schott Communities give expression to their belief through efforts to provide programs and services that assess and address the multiple needs of persons who are deaf or disabled.
In a pragmatic yet loving way the agency affirms the capabilities and contributions of the deaf or disabled to society. The agency aspires to offer a comprehensive program that integrates several dimensions of its ministry:

For 2022, Schott Music & Art welcomes acclaimed Christian recording artists DUPREE - the only mother/son duo in Christian contemporary music. Writing, recording and producing their music from Orlando, the group's songs are heard daily around the world on hundreds of radio stations and social media. Their music conveys the positive messages of Jesus Christ through uplifting melodies, smooth harmonies, and inspirational lyrics.
The group's signature sound includes Dylan's virtuoso guitar playing and solos. As a young prodigy, Dylan was discovered at age 17 by the multi platinum-selling band LFO (Summer Girls, Every Other Time), touring with them as lead guitarist. Afterward, he attended Rollins College to study jazz guitar before forming DUPREE with his mother Lauren. He has been called the "John Mayer" of Christian music and his versatile solos have been compared to the styles of Jimi Hendrix, Brad Paisley and Eddie Van Halen. A powerful showcase of his skills can be heard on the instrumental Reflections from the Never Forget album.
Lauren grew up in east Tennessee playing piano and singing at church. You can hear this "country church" influence in several of their songs like Your Way, Chapel Song (Old Dirt Road) and He Can Do Anything. But their song writing is diverse and the duo has produced many popular rock songs including Mighty, Never Forget and Praise Be. They also have a couple of very successful pop / EDM songs - Everlasting Love and Can You Feel It (Change Gonna Come).
With powerful Christian-based songs, amazing guitar solos, and a one-of-a-kind mother/son onstage dynamic, the DUPREE show is inspirational, entertaining, heart-warming and always humorous. The show is great for the entire family. Get your TICKETS now before they sell out!
Art classes are very popular with clients and very rewarding. Taught by professional artists, the classes provide students a medium of expression that is satisfying and therapeutic. While students learn the techniques of acrylic painting, they similarly learn how color and form convey emotion and feeling. In the classes clients explore their own creative response to the constraints and frustrations of disability; they paint with hands, feet, mouth or headgear - whatever means is available to them.
Completing a painting is an accomplishment that affirms the student artist’s skill and sense of self-worth.
All paintings are original, created by local resident students and artists. Many of the artists will be on hand to discuss their work.
The art room opens at 4:30pm for all ticket holders. Paintings on exhibit will be available for purchase by silent auction. Just add your bid to the bid sheet at each station for a chance to win. The winners of the auction will be announced after the music show.
Wine from the wine garden, food, drinks and alcoholic beverages will be available - come early, eat and drink, meet the artists, and have fun making bids.
