More Dance Than Dinner Soiree Returns to Support CAM

More Dance Than Dinner Soiree

More Dance than Dinner Soiree

December 16, 2011

Showtime
9:00pm-11:00 pm
After Party
11:00pm-2:00 pm
at TantriK

The Chicago Academy of Music will offer financially sustainable free music education through a variety of programs for children who are underserved and/or chronically poor residents in the South and West sides of Chicago. Programs offered will utilize both Suzuki and traditional methods of musical instruction and will be available mostly for children from a low socioeconomic status (SES) background. The programs offered include weekly musical instruction, daily after-school group music classes, and specialized year-round workshops. While the priorities and goals of each program will differ, they will all serve the mission of the academy.

“The mission of the Chicago Academy of Music is to transform the lives of young people by instilling positive values through affordable music education.” A main functionality of the Chicago Academy of Music is illustrated in our programs using Instruments of Transformation. Not only will students develop into proficient musicians, but their experience with their instrument, their instructor, and (in most cases) with their parent will directly impact areas of their lives outside of the music academy.

We are currently fundraising for the purpose of purchasing and renovating our first location at 4341 South Cottage Grove Avenue, Chicago IL.  Integral to our renovation plans are a daycare and café, which will generate the revenue required to ensure the long-term sustainability of the music program. The daycare will specialize in early math, science, reading and music education through play coupled with bilingual teaching. Sustainable free music education will only be achieved after we reach our overall donation target of $2.5 million.

The plan to reach the targeted donation amount is by way of a series of fundraisers, specifically, the monthly “More Dance Than Dinner” events running from November to June. These two-hour events will showcase the finest vocalists, instrumentalists and dancers Chicago has to offer. Hit songs will be selected and arranged for the specific instrumentation of each performance. An example of this is Maroon 5’s #1 best seller “She would be loved” played through the rigors of the genre’s: Classical, Cuban jazz, Gospel, Salsa landing on R&B; unveiled in front of the audience coupled with (where possible) dance performance. For the aforementioned to be achieved, CAM, in conjunction with Purple Elephant Productions is seeking a tax deductible donation and/or a tax deductible donation toward sponsorship for the planning and production process for the first fundraiser of the series, which is scheduled to take place on December16, 2011, 9:00pm-11:00pm at Tantric. Thank you and we hope you can be our sponsor or a donation.
