Arts Lovers, mark your calendars for the annual Elisha Darlin Awards on March 29, 2013!
Dubuque County Fine Arts Society is proud to announce that we will present Dubuque Symphony Orchestra Conductor William Intriligator with the 33rd annual Elisha Darlin Award at a reception on Friday, March 29 at the Hotel Julien Dubuque. Each year, the Fine Arts Society presents the Elisha Darlin Arts Award in recognition of the contributions of an individual or group who impact the arts and cultural landscape of the Dubuque community. Past recipients include artists in various mediums, arts organizers, advocates, patrons, educators, and those involved in the promotion of arts and culture.
This year, Fine Arts Society presents the award to William Intriligator. In his thirteenth season as Music Director and Conductor of the Dubuque Symphony Orchestra, Intriligator has guided the orchestra through an exciting period of artistic and organizational growth. Under Intriligator’s direction, the Dubuque Symphony Orchestra has added staged opera, staged ballet, a chamber series, programs designed for young professionals, additional educational youth concerts, new education initiatives, the re-introduction of family concerts, and large scale festivals such as the MozartFest and the Multicultural Festival.
An annual award presented by the Dubuque County Fine Arts Society, the Elisha Darlin Arts Award honors an individual or group that has made an outstanding contribution to the arts. Named after the late Elisha Darlin, an educator and founding board member of Dubuque County Fine Arts Society, past recipients of the award include Ruth and Russ Nash, Sue Riedel, Lenore Howard and Doug Donald, Sue Flogel, Bob Woodward, Gail Chavenelle, Sandye Voight, Gene Tully, Fran and Ellen Henkels, former Dubuque City Councilwoman Ann Michalski, and the Dubuque Cultural Preservation Committee among many others. Last year’s award recipients were Connie Twining and Stormy Mochal, co-owners of Outside The Lines Art Gallery in Cable Car Square.
