CHICAGO (WLS) --ABC 7 is celebrating Black History month, and connecting you with events and people in our community.
On Monday, Feb. 29, the Chicago Academy of Music Conservatory will host its Black History Month benefit concert. It starts at 7 p.m. at the University of Chicago's University Church Chapel, and will feature musical guest The New Ethnic Heritage Ensemble (EHE).
The Chicago Academy of Music (CAM) Conservatory encourages both adults and children in the city to explore their musical talents. Through lessons with professional artists, aspiring musicians are exposed to a variety of musical genres and backgrounds.
