Robert Cutietta, dean of USC’s Thornton School of Music and Glorya Kaufman School of Dance, was quoted by the Los Angeles Times in an article surveying community arts leaders about the appointment of Rachel Moore to head the Los Angeles Music Center organization. Moore has served as executive director of New York City-based American Ballet Theatre for 11 years.
“I think she’s going to be perfect,” Cutietta said of Moore’s appointment. “There are certain people who just have a talent for arts administration, which is often an underappreciated thing.”
Cutietta continued: “What she has to do is articulate what the Music Center is. She can [design] some great programs, but it has to start with ‘What’s the identity?’”
Moore will join the Music Center in October of this year.
