World AIDS Day Concert

AIDS Research Alliance will host the World AIDS Day concert

World AIDS Day Concert

On November 30, 2012, AIDS Research Alliance will host the first ever, free, Los Angeles community World AIDS Day concert at The Colburn School (across from the Disney Concert Hall), from 7:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Join the community partners, and sponsors for this exciting inaugural event. The concert is free and open to the public, but you must register to attend.

World AIDS Day began in 1987 with a proposal by two officials at the Global Programme on AIDS at the World Health Organization in Geneva, Switzerland (now known as UNAIDS). Today, government and health officials worldwide observe World AIDS Day every year on December 1st to raise awareness of the HIV/AIDS pandemic. In different countries, World AIDS Day is celebrated in ceremonies, speeches, and even flash mobs. In 1993, Bill Clinton issued the first presidential World AIDS Day proclamation. President Obama has continued these proclamations each year of his presidency, and during last year’s World AIDS Day, he called for an “AIDS free generation.”

Emmy Award winning actor, LeVar Burton, as Master of Ceremonies for this new event. Dr. David Hardy, Director of the Division of Infectious Diseases at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, and Professor of Medicine at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA, will be the keynote speaker, and address the next steps in eradicating the virus. The program will feature classical performances by the Calidore String Quartet and a Colburn Wind Ensemble. Honored guests include Dr. Michael Gottlieb, the physician known for indentifying HIV as a new disease, the Consul General of Brazil in Los Angeles – Ambassador Bruno de Rísios Bath, and Oscar de La O, the president of Bienestar Human Services. Our Presenting Sponsor is Kaiser Permanente. Please join the Los Angeles area community in observing World AIDS Day 2012 at The Colburn School’s Zipper Hall.
