At Boston Music Project, we are proud to have a board that reflects the students and communities we serve, with a shared commitment of bringing transformative music education to Boston youth. Today, we spotlight Diana Lo!
Diana is an attorney at Foley Hoag LLP. She grew up surrounded by music and was a violinist in the youth orchestras at the New England Conservatory. As someone who has experienced the benefits of music education, and as a BMP parent, Diana understands the positive impact music can have on a child’s development. She is excited to join the BMP Board this year and she hopes to help make music education more accessible to children throughout Boston.
We asked Diana to share a bit more about her musical background and her life around music.
What impact has music had on you personally?
Music has been a huge part of my life. I grew up listening to my mom play the piano and started playing the violin in elementary school. Playing an instrument throughout my childhood and into college helped me develop so many important skills (confidence, discipline, the ability to perform in front of an audience) that translate outside of music.
What inspired you to join the board of BMP/What were your motivations to join the BMP board?
As a BMP parent, I have been impressed with the program. I am in awe of the teachers and the impact they have on students as young as those in pre-kindergarten. After learning more about BMP and its mission, I’m excited to join the Board and support the BMP team and help expand the program. I’m particularly excited about how BMP introduces music to children who otherwise might not have any exposure to music or the opportunity to learn an instrument, especially at a young age.
As a director, what is the main objective/vision you would like to see BMP achieve?
I hope to see BMP expand its programming and reach more students throughout Boston.
