MARCH 14: “My Story: Breaking Barriers in Classical Music”
with Ann Hobson Pilot

Ann Hobson Pilot, the first African-American woman to hold a principal position with a major orchestra, talks about how she reached the pinnacle of her career in spite of the obstacles and prejudices that she faced. Ann will discuss how she uses her lifetime experience to teach young people how to navigate their way in classical music. Issues of racial, ethnic, and gender diversity in the orchestral field will be discussed in an interview with her husband, Prentice Pilot, a bassist and the former Director of Music for the City of Boston.

Ann Hobson Pilot retired in 2009 after 40 years as the principal harpist with the National Symphony and the Boston Symphony Orchestra. Ann is a graduate of the Cleveland Institute of Music, where she gave the commencement address and received an honorary doctorate in 2018. She retired from the faculties of Boston University and New England Conservatory but continues to teach students at the Tanglewood Institute (MA) each summer.
