5BMF's NEW LEADERSHIP
Introducing 5BMF’s new General and Artistic Director
Five Boroughs Music Festival is pleased to announce the appointment of Leah Hollingsworth as the organization’s new General and Artistic Director, as of September 1, 2023. Leah takes over the leadership of 5BMF following the departure of Artistic Director Michael Unterman, who is embarking on an exciting new position with Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra in Toronto.
An accomplished violist, writer, and arts administrator, Leah brings professional experience, creativity, and passion for NYC’s chamber music scene to the organization. Join us at our season opening concerts on September 29 in Brooklyn and September 30 in Queens to meet Leah and welcome her to 5BMF!
