Support the Academy
The Academy of Music, one of America’s most spectacular performing arts buildings, is a National Historic Landmark that has been in constant service to the Greater Philadelphia community since 1857. The ongoing restoration of the Academy requires consistent stewardship and planned investments that keep it safe, comfortable, and beautiful for all.
Modeled after Milan’s famed La Scala, it is the oldest opera house in the United States still used for its original purpose. Philadelphia’s Academy of Music has hosted countless performances and significant historical events and was the original home of The Philadelphia Orchestra.
The Restoration Fund
Gifts to the Academy of Music Restoration Fund support ongoing capital projects that ensure the structural integrity and long-term preservation of this National Historic Landmark. The Academy of Music is owned and managed by The Philadelphia Orchestra and Kimmel Center, Inc. Ticket sales from resident companies support everyday maintenance of Academy, but not capital improvement projects.
We are deeply grateful to the many donors who support the ongoing restoration of this iconic Philadelphia landmark. Their generous gifts directly support numerous capital projects like these.
The restoration of our beloved Academy of Music is ongoing, with exciting projects on the horizon. Gifts to the Academy of Music Restoration Fund directly support this vital and beautiful work. Please consider supporting the Restoration Fund today!
