They were interviewed by Dave Lawrence, President & CEO of the Cultural Council for Palm Beach County.
Evans shared numerous humorous anecdotes about his career as a Broadway producer and later as founder of Classical South Florida and senior executive at the Perez Museum of Art in Miami, where he worked with such luminaries as Nell Carter, Cloris Leachman, Shirley MacLaine, and more.
Waldo emphasized her commitment to deliver innovative, diverse, meaningful and accessible visual and performing arts experiences to multi-cultural audiences. "The transformative nature of the Arts moves us, and Arts Garage is proud to connect our community to the world through the arts," said the longtime educator and successful nonprofit turn-around agent.
