Bach Festival Society of Winter Park - Diverse Leadership Pipeline 


To address board vacancies and succession at our region’s nonprofit arts and cultural organizations, United Arts created the Diverse Leadership Pipeline to help the entire arts and cultural sector recruit new members.
This program will help connect individuals who may be a good match based on their interests and skill sets, with local arts and cultural nonprofit organizations. It’s designed to help ensure the leadership of Central Florida’s arts and cultural community reflects its diverse population. Without diverse people included in the decision-making process of our boards, we will not reach our vision that all people of Central Florida have access to the arts.
1. Review the cultural organizations’ profiles below, and then 2. Complete the application at the bottom of this page or on the organization’s profile page!

If your nonprofit arts and/or cultural organization would like to be included, please reach out to Sean Thurman, Marketing & Communications Director at United Arts: Sean@UnitedArts.cc.

We are looking for board members with an appreciation for, but not necessarily extensive knowledge of, classical music. We are seeking representation from diverse demographic groups. We are looking for areas of experience including marketing, finance, law, fund development and governance.

  • We ask that all Board members make a financial contribute. There is no set amount. Contributions this year ranged from $100 to $45,000. Unless there is a conflict of interest, we also ask that Board members help identify potential donors..
  • Our nomination process is ongoing.
  • Trustees serve staggered three year terms. There are no limits on the number of terms.
  • The Board meets bi-monthly September through May. Meetings are typically held in the afternoon on the third or fourth Wednesday of the month.
  • Standing committees are Artistic, Finance, Marketing, Development, Nominating and Endowment.


The Mission of the Bach Festival Society of Winter Park is to delight, challenge and inspire the Central Florida community by presenting exceptionally high-quality performances of the finest classical music, with special emphasis on the music of J.S.Bach and those inspired by him. We also seek to introduce people of all ages and backgrounds to the beauty and relevance of classical music and its derivatives.
