The students of the Chicago Academy for the Arts will present the 21st annual AIDS Benefit Sept. 22.
Each year, Academy students produce and perform in a benefit show to support HIV/AIDS research. The 21st Annual AIDS Benefit will take place Sept. 22 at 4:45 p.m. and 7 p.m. and Sept. 23 at 7 p.m. in the dance wing of the Academy, at 1010 W Chicago Ave.
Started by Academy alum Justin Tranter, an industry songwriter of many hits such as DNCE's summer hit "Cake by the Ocean," the event will be a showcase of each of our student artist's individual style, ranging from dramatic to comedic and everything in between.
Students from all six departments at the Academy ( Music, Theatre, Musical Theatre, Dance, Visual Arts, Media Arts ) will be performing a variety of song, original dance and theatrical performances as well as putting original artwork up for display and auction, under the direction and curation of student leadership.
All proceeds after costs go toward The AIDS Foundation of Chicago. Our goal is to raise $10,000.
