The Restoration of The 1905 Historic Academy of Music Theatre

The 1905 Academy of Music Theatre in Lynchburg, VA: A theatre bathed in silence since 1958. But not for much longer! Everyone who enters feels a certain indefinable magic, and they all share one definite and inarguable belief: This must happen!   On June 3, the Academy announced a $3 million pledge towards the campaign, and then on October 14, announced $2.3 million in support from the City of Lynchburg. Most recently, the Academy announced receipt of a generous $600,000 grant from the City of Lynchburg's Economic Development Authority.   This brings the fundraising total to $14.1 million, enabling Phase 1 of work to begin this year. Just $2.5 million to go! A huge thank you to our donors and leaders!
