He has served as the Senior Advisor to the League of American Orchestras, the President of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra Association, the Executive Director of the National Symphony Orchestra in Washington, D.C. and has been on the Board of Overseers of the Curtis Institute of Music, the Executive Committee of the Avery Fisher Artist Program, and the Honorary Board of the Institute for the Study of Black Music at Columbia College Chicago among others. In 2007, he was cited for “outstanding contributions to and accomplishments in the field of music education” by the Eastern Division of the National Association for Music Education.
