Dallas’ Finest Performing Arts Groups Assemble for Singular Event

Almost 200 performing artists are polishing their performances for Monday’s A Gathering 2013, a reflection on HIV/AIDS through music, dance and spoken word. The rare collaboration is a benefit event to raise funds for four local AIDS service organizations. One recent rehearsal in the Dee and Charles Wyly Theatre included well-known performers Liz Mikel, Denise Lee, Patty Breckenridge and Gary Floyd, among others. The one-night-only event will be at 7 p.m. on Monday, October 7, 2013 at the Margot and Bill Winspear Opera House in the Dallas Arts District.

“These are amazing artists, all local, coming together for A Gathering 2013,” said Charles Santos, Executive and Artistic Director of TITAS. “Based on what we’ve seen during rehearsals, it is going to be a night of spectacular performances!”

This event, involving some of the finest arts organizations in Dallas, is produced by TITAS and the AT&T Performing Arts Center. The cast includes more than 175 singers, dancers and actors. 100% of the proceeds will directly benefit four Dallas AIDS service organizations: AIDS Arms, AIDS Interfaith Network, AIDS Services of Dallas and Resource Center Dallas. This event follows the success of the first A Gathering in 2011, which marked the devastating impact of AIDS on the arts community and raised almost $40,000.
