Congratulations to ASO Violinist Juan Ramirez! Juan, along with only four other musicians across the country, has been chosen to receive the League of American Orchestras Ford Musician Award for Excellence in Community Service. Sponsored by the Ford Motor Company, this award recognizes musicians who, in partnership with their orchestras and organizations, use music to engage, inspire, and heal their community. Over a 45-year time period, Juan has dedicated much of his music career to connecting with the Latino community here in Atlanta and internationally. A committed performer, composer, teacher, mentor, and community leader, he has brought music into the lives of students who might not have access to instruments and training, and has engaged many constituencies on stage, in high schools and libraries, and at community events. Congrats, Juan! Video by Kristian Melom.
