CLASSICAL ACTION HISTORY

Classical Action started as a concept in response to a question.

The question posed in the early 1990s to Classical Action’s founding director, Charles Hamlen, was "Why isn’t the classical music performing arts community more engaged in the fight against AIDS?"

The concept focused on the idea of bringing the performing arts community into this cause by offering them a variety of opportunities to offer their time and talent in support of people with AIDS and HIV around the country.

In the 20 years since Classical Action opened its fundraising doors, the response certainly bears out the concept, as witnessed by the inspiring generosity of so many lovers of the arts, performing artists, managers, recording companies, administrators and other professionals in the performing arts field who care deeply about helping those who have been impacted by the AIDS epidemic.

A concept is only as good as those who endorse it and bring it to fruition. We are blessed that so many of our colleagues and friends have chosen to do so with such unwavering and generous support over the years.

Chris Kenney currently serves as director of Classical Action.
