It is an exciting time as we prepare for major growth with the addition of our historic Theatre. Thanks to our amazing donors and patrons, the Academy is growing stronger every day and with that growth comes change. This year our Gala fundraiser is part of that change.

The 2017 Gala will feature Jim Caruso’s Cast Party with Billy Stritch at the piano. Their popular open mic cabaret show has been a Manhattan mainstay for the past fifteen years, hosting legendary artists such as Liza Minnelli, Natalie Cole and Tony Bennett. For its Lynchburg debut, Cast Party will celebrate a variety of excellent homegrown talent.

Proceeds from the Gala are a major source of funding for all the Academy’s programming and outreach initiatives, making a meaningful impact on our ability to serve our community through arts and culture. The arts build a strong and vibrant community and your support makes our community stronger.
