Young Friends Committee
The Young Friends Committee of the Academy of Music Anniversary Concert and Ball is a group of individuals, age 21 – 40, dedicated to the preservation and ongoing restoration of our beloved National Historic Landmark, the Academy of Music. The Academy is the oldest opera house in continuous use in the nation, is home to Opera Philadelphia and the Pennsylvania Ballet, and is the premier venue for Broadway performance for Broadway performance in Philadelphia.
The Young Friends serve as passionate and committed ambassadors, working in the community to engage new constituents for the Anniversary Concert and Ball and Monster’s Ball Masquerade and to build awareness for the restoration and preservative needs of “The Grand Old of Locust Street.” Throughout the year-long membership, Young Friends enjoy exclusive Committee events, premiere seating at the Anniversary Concert and Ball, and behind-the-scenes access to the Academy.
