L'Académie is the critically acclaimed chamber orchestra that specializes in sharing the humanizing beauty of Baroque music. Our mission has two parts- to present stylish, world-class orchestral performances of French Baroque music and to share the transformative power of music through chamber music concerts at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Massachusetts General Hospital.

The Massachusetts General Hospital series is supported in part by the Ribakoff Family Foundation.


L'Académie is the only chamber orchestra in the country whose sole mission is to contribute to the improvement of patient care through live chamber music concerts in hospitals as a holistic approach to healing.


Promote the healing power of music through weekly chamber music concerts at hospitals.

Promote our role as community ambassadors within the fabric of the Boston and beyond.
