WISER A Cappella Jam set for March 22
Posted 03/07/2019 03:06PM

Durham Academy’s XIV Hours is hosting the 12th annual WISER A Cappella Jam in Kenan Auditorium. Last year, the event returned to the place where it all started — the Durham Academy campus — after rocking downtown Durham's Carolina Theatre for the past couple of years. The concert — featuring groups from Duke, UNC, DA and Chapel Hill — is set for Friday, March 22, from 7:30 to 10 p.m. in Kenan Auditorium.

The A Cappella Jam is a fundraiser for WISER (Women's Institute of Secondary Education & Research), an organization founded at Duke University to improve the health and education of women in the Muhuru Bay area of Kenya. Durham Academy's WISER Club is proud of its affiliation with the organization and proud to have been able to raise a significant amount of funds for WISER over the years.
