Acoustical enhancements and the creation of a livestreaming production room will support in-person and online performances at the American Philosophical Society’s Benjamin Franklin Hall. In partnership with the Philosophical Society, Philadelphia Chamber Music Society will also build a portable stage extension to increase flexibility for ensemble sizes and presentations, redesign stage lighting, renovate backstage space, and install an ADA–compliant front entrance.

The total grant amount represents project funding plus an additional 20% in unrestricted general operating support.
