Opera News Profiles ‘Visionary’ Philharmonic President and CEO Deborah Borda

 

“I will do everything I can to move our art form along the evolutionary path. Will it be revolutionary? I hope so.”

So says President and CEO Deborah Borda in January’s Opera News.

The profile is a vivid snapshot of Borda in action at the helm of the New York Philharmonic, touching on her personal background, her hard-won insights from her successful career in orchestra administration, her bond with Music Director Jaap van Zweden, and defining work traits such as her intense preparation: “I give a lot of thought to what I do,” Borda says. “I always say, the best way to invent the future is to predict it.”

President and CEO Deborah Borda Inducted Into American Academy of Arts & Sciences

 

On behalf of Deborah Borda, we’d like to thank the Academy.

No, our much-lauded President and CEO didn’t win an Oscar. But she was inducted into the American Academy of Arts & Sciences last weekend in Cambridge, Mass., where the Academy is headquartered. Above, Borda (right) shakes hands with Geraldine L. Richmond, Secretary and Board Member of the Academy. 

Borda was in good company: fellow inductees included President Barack Obama, Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor, Tom Hanks, and Katherine Farley, Chairman of Lincoln Center (also pictured).

The Academy “serves the nation as a champion of scholarship, civil dialogue, and useful knowledge” and “convenes leaders from the academic, business, and government sectors to respond to the challenges facing the nation and the world.”

Congratulations, Deborah!
