Academy Of Music Young Friends Host 9th Annual Monster’s Ball

Ghouls and gals from the Academy of Music Young Friends gathered on Friday, October 11, 2019 for the Ninth Annual Monsters Ball Masquerade at the Exchange at the Ritz-Carlton, Philadelphia.

The Academy of Music Young Friends is a fast-growing dimension of awareness and engagement strategies that inspires the participation of the next generation of leaders, doers and givers for the Academy of Music. Among the popular events for AOMYF are the Ninth Annual Monsters Ball Masquerade, the Young Friends tent at the Radnor Hunt Races and happy hours throughout the year. Membership supports the Restoration Fund for the Academy of Music.

The Academy of Music is owned by The Philadelphia Orchestra. As a venue, the Academy is managed through a legacy contract with the Kimmel Center. Ticket sales from resident companies support everyday maintenance of Academy. Sales do not provide an income stream for any capital improvement projects leaving those investments to ownership. The Restoration Fund Office raises all the money required for the ongoing capital projects that ensure the structural integrity and long-term preservation of the National Historic Landmark.
