I am particularly excited to join an organization with so many wonderful initiatives already in progress, like the Richmond Symphony School of Music and look forward to building new ways to connect the arts to the community, bring people together and further enhance Richmond’s reputation as the cultural center of Virginia.”

“Lacey brings with her an energetic commitment to digital innovation and an unusually rich and varied range of experience in arts management,” says Board Chairman George L. Mahoney. “She was named one of Musical America’s Top 30 Professionals in 2018 and has been recognized for her efforts to expand the diversity of American orchestras. Lacey is a terrific communicator and has an exceptional track record in patron development, musical education and community engagement, making her the perfect successor to David Fisk.”
