Mission Statement

To enrich greater Northampton's quality of life as the premiere presenter of community based performing arts. Throughout the next three years, the Board of Trustees has made it a priority to achieve that vision by strengthening the theater’s finances and promoting of the theater’s brand.

Description

On May 23, 1891, the 800-seat Academy of Music opened with an inaugural concert that featured the Boston Symphony Orchestra. The event marked the beginning of "a new era" in musical and dramatic attractions for the City of Northampton, according to the local newspaper.

Today, the Academy of music is a distinguished community-based performing arts venue with a stable of resident companies that produce live theatrical, musical and dance performances, and show non-mainstream films. It is home to the Northampton Arts Council, the Pioneer Valley Ballet, the Commonwealth Opera, the Young at Heart Chorus, the Northampton Film Festival, and to the many events of the Out! For Reel film series.

The Academy of Music is an investment in the local community and, as such, it needs continued and sustained support to ensure our families, friends, neighbors and future generations will be able to perform and be entertained here.
