Monday Morning Meet Your Leaders – Allison Walter
Garden State Philharmonic
1. What is one of the most important qualities of a great leader?
Vision. A great leader should have the ability to see the big picture; where their organization is headed, what it’s capable of, and what it will take to get there.
2. How does your organization take our community to the next level?
The Garden State Philharmonic strives to make quality symphonic performances and music education accessible to all people. We know that involvement with the arts is critical to a well-rounded society, and here on the Jersey Shore, we are proud to offer educational and artistic opportunities to foster a love and appreciation for music.
3. What is your favorite thing to do in your spare time?
There is nothing better than reading a good book on the beach.
4. What is your favorite food/recipe and why?
Chicken Biryani, from Shloka in Freehold. A few years ago, I had the opportunity to spend an extended time in India and this meal always transports me back.
