Myran Parker-Brass is 2020 BDA Unsung Hero!

BDA will be honoring arts advocate, musician, and former Executive Director for the Arts for the Boston Public Schools Myran Parker-Brass as our 2020 Unsung Hero at the BDA Gala


Myran has spent her professional life creating and managing arts programs and engaged in arts advocacy. During her tenure at BPS she created initiatives to increase access, equity and quality for all students, and expanded dance activity across the school system, nurturing both students and the teaching artists who serve them. She also shepherded the creation of Raise the Floor! Boston Dance Alliance’s special initiative to provide our wonderful portable dance floor to BPS  free of charge.

Myran is an in-demand arts consultant, and throughout her long career has shared her expertise with  many boards of directors and agencies. A well-regarded classical and jazz singer who has appeared with the Boston Pops, she is not technically “unsung,” but we will be happy to sing her praises at the Central Square Theater on Tuesday, March 17!
