American Society

The Academy has close connections with the U.S., and many eminent American musicians have learned their craft within its four walls. These include conductor David Robertson, currently Music Director of the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra and Chief Conductor of the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, as well as acclaimed composer Augusta Read Thomas - who is also one of ASRAM’s Directors.

If you are a U.S tax payer, then please do consider supporting the American Society for the Royal Academy of Music. You will help realise the dreams of some of the world’s most talented young musicians and play your part in shaping the future of music. Our donation form can be found here.

The American Society for the Royal Academy of Music (ASRAM) is a 501(c)(3) organization, so all donations made by U.S. taxpayers are tax-deductible to the full extent provided by the IRS. The ASRAM Board periodically reviews grant proposals from the Royal Academy of Music and distributes funds to support it.
