Silent Disco @ Leepa-Rattner Museum of Art

Silent Disco at The Leepa-Rattner Museum of Art

 

Everybody dance now!

Get ready to dance as the Leepa-Rattner Museum of Art debuts its first Silent Disco!  Silent Discos (AKA “Silent Parties”), which have become popular at major music festivals such as Bonnaroo and Coachella, require dancers to wear wireless headphones that pick up the music instead of a speaker system.

The surreal musical experience, unlike any other, allows attendees to choose from three DJ stations at the switch of a button.  Listeners will only hear the music being played on their selected station for a personalized experience.

Silent Disco is a fundraising event to support school tours and education opportunities at the Leepa-Rattner Museum of Art, raising critical funds that enable us to bring to our community the best art and provide educational opportunities for students of all ages.
