Pat Brown, 2023 Gala Honoree
We will have the immense pleasure of honoring Festival trustee Pat Brown at this year’s Gala. When Pat moved to Brunswick after a distinguished career in New York as an editor for Bon Appétit, Cuisine, and HarperCollins, the Festival became the focus of her volunteer life. Pat’s longtime dedication to student scholarship has transformed the lives of so many rising young artists by giving them the opportunity to attend the Festival. Ever since she spearheaded the first Scholarship Gala, she has inspired others to join her in supporting our remarkable musicians.
