Dominique-René de Lerma: Musical America: The MA 30 Professionals of the Year: Profiles in Courage December 2014

Dominique-René de Lerma: 

The MA 30 Professionals of the Year:
Profiles in Courage
December 2014

We recently asked the worldwide performing arts community to nominate 30 people who have "taken a risk, spoken out where others were silent—all to the measurable benefit of their arts organizations and the field."
You answered, with hundreds of nominees. 

For the Musical America editors, it was a labor of love.  We combed through
the nominees (not an easy task; all were deserving) and based our 30 final choices on those who can show measureable results, uniqueness, persistence in the face of resistance or hardend tradition, and inventiveness.

These are the risk-takers and innovators. Please join us in celebrating the Musical America 30: Profiles In Courage.
