A Word About Our Sponsor: The Leon Levy Foundation
The Leon Levy Foundation's support has been essential in allowing the Philharmonic Archives to develop an online digital site that makes possible the most realistic and comprehensive research experience. The Philharmonic expressed its gratitude to the Foundation for its $5 million of support with a surprise serenade:
The Leon Levy Foundation, through its archives and catalogues program, helps arts and humanities institutions preserve, use and make available important records, manuscripts, letters, photographs and other historical materials in their archives and store rooms, with the ultimate goal of promoting advanced scholarship and expanding knowledge. Since its start in 2007, the Leon Levy Archives Grant program has awarded more than $12 million to 25 institutions.
