Billy Childs appointed as CMA’s president of the board of directors

Pianist and composer Billy Childs has been selected as president of the board of directors of Chamber Music America (CMA). Childs, the first jazz musician to have ever been selected for this position, started his term as president on July 1.

 

Also joining the board are violinist, violist and artistic director of the Orcas Island Chamber Music Festival Aloysia Friedmann, violinist and composer Jessie Montgomery, musician and educator Michele Rosewoman, flutist Kathie Lynn Stewart, Moss Arts Center Executive Director Ruth Waalkes and violinist John Zion.

 

Childs received his first appointment to CMA’s board in 2005, where he served a key role in guiding the organization’s then-young jazz programs and became an advocate for the needs of small-ensemble musicians and composers of all genres.
