Erin Hannigan, Dallas Symphony Orchestra Principal Oboe (Nancy P. & John G. Penson Chair), is one of just five orchestra musicians from across the U.S. who received Ford Musician Awards for Excellence in Community Service from the League of American Orchestras at the League’s 73rd National Conference in Chicago, June 13-15, 2018. Recognizing the transformative power of music, the Awards honor those in the orchestra field who employ music for the benefit of the greater community.
The awardees’ impact has been deep and life-changing; in partnership with their orchestras and organizations, the musicians have used music to engage, inspire and heal multiple populations: Latino children and teens, rural communities with limited access to quality music education, cancer patients and their families, the homeless and housing insecure, and visual and performing artists united in support of sheltered animals.
“Erin Hannigan is a wonderful orchestra citizen. She really cares about the Dallas Symphony and being involved in our community,” says Kim Noltemy, President & CEO of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra. “We are so proud that she is receiving this well-deserved honor.”
