Good news for Delaware Symphony Orchestra and departing exec Lucinda Williams
Williams went on to become the executive director of the Delaware Symphony Orchestra, which seems to have been doing fine work. The ensemble, led by David Amado, made a recording with the Los Angeles Guitar Quartet that was nominated last year for a Latin Grammy.
While things were progressing musically, life was taking some unfortunate turns for Williams, who was badly injured in ...
Understandably, Williams decided to step down from the symphony job. On Tuesday, at the orchestra's season-ending meeting, she was informed that the board and staff started a fund with the Delaware Juvenile Diabetes Foundation named for Williams and her grandson.
That surprise was topped by another -- a $1 million gift to the orchestra from patron Tatiana Copeland, who just happens to be Rachmaninoff's niece.
Given all that Williams has been through, that coda must have sounded extra sweet. I wish her well.
