Hobart Earle has been recognized as one of 30 “Professionals of the Year” by Musical America Worldwide.
Musical America Worldwide writes as follows about the “Professionals of the Year” :
"For our 2014 issue, we sent out a questionnaire to the international performing arts community, requesting nominations. Nominees, we wrote, should be people who have “taken a risk, stepped up for the cause, spoken out where others were silent—all to the measurable benefit of their respective organizations and/or the field.” We received hundreds of responses. We based our 30 final choices on a number of factors including measurable results, uniqueness, persistence in the face of resistance or hardened tradition, and/or inventiveness."
