Welcome to



Music Festival
Celebrating the upcoming 150th Anniversary
Sergei Rachmaninoff

   Founded in 2017, Triumph Music Festival provides an unforgettable experience for the performing artists and the audience in a stunning Academy of Music Ballroom. The Academy of Music is one of many musicians’ favorite places in all of the USA, and it is home of the Philadelphia Orchestra, where a composer and pianist S. Rachmaninoff performed his works.

Our upcoming festivals of 2022 and 2023 are dedicated to the 150th anniversary of Sergei Rachmaninoff. Mostly Rachmaninoff's works will be performed by our world-class guest artists during the festival day. The winners of both the Triumph Music Festival and other international competitions will be sharing the stage along with Philadelphia Orchestra members, students of Curtis Institute of Music and New England Conservatory.
