This past week, Curtis Warner, Associate Vice President of Education Outreach and Executive Director of Berklee City Music won the Boston Music Award’s Humanitarian of the Year Award. Here is a quote from Curtis about his experience:
“A few weeks ago I received a call notifying me that I was going to be awarded a Boston Music Award for community leadership. I was flattered. Last night, however, when I learned that the award was actually for “Humanitarian of the Year,” I was humbled. I was blown away by the instant celebrity status as cameras followed me all around; even the staff was gracious and I’m still seeing spots from all the flashing lights! As I mentioned in my remarks that evening, when I think of the great humanitarians of our day, I have never considered myself to be of those ranks, but instead, just very blessed to earn a living helping young folks through music.” It’s amazing that an event that is typically framed in a perception of hype and glitter, took time to demonstrate the depth of their commitment not only to music but to humanity in general.”
