From Leopold Stokowski to John Coltrane, Philadelphia’s musical history is rich and storied. Today, the local musicians of Philadelphia are an essential part of the city’s cultural life. During this unprecedented time, we ask for donations to help our local freelance musicians who are in severe economic distress due to the COVID-19 global pandemic.
Approximately 86% of our membership are freelance workers who perform with Pennsylvania Ballet, The Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia, Opera Philadelphia, The Academy of Vocal Arts, Walnut Street Theatre, The Philly POPS, and Broadway Philadelphia, and many other groups. This means their income is predominantly per-service. Our goal is to help musicians based on their immediate financial needs.
Please donate! Any amount will make an essential difference to so many local artists in need.
Thank you for your generosity!
