Founded in 1993, Classical Action: Performing Arts Against AIDS is a not-for-profit organization "which draws upon the talents, resources and generosity of the performing arts community to raise vitally needed funds for HIV/AIDS service, education, and prevention programs across the country."
CAYENNE, established this year, aims to attract young classical music fans and the next generation of potential philanthropists. Its first event, held in February, featured jazz musicians Kurt Elling and Fred Hersch; the second program, given last month, featured pianists Natasha Paremski and Gabriel Kahane performing music by Mozart and Prokofiev as well as Kahane's own craigslistlieder, art song settings of eight anonymous posts from the website craigslist.org.
The July 19 event begins with a reception at 7:00 p.m.; the Brasil Guitar Duo's performance starts at 8:15 p.m.. Light refreshments will be served. People over 40 are welcome to attend, although they are encouraged to bring someone under 40 along if possible. Tickets are $40 ($25 for students) and are available at www.classicalaction.org.
