The Cultural Council of Palm Beach County has announced the winners of the 2018 Muse Awards and Young Singers of the Palm Beaches will be honored this year with the award for “Excellence in Diversity and Inclusion.” This award recognizes arts organizations with outstanding initiatives reflecting diversity. The award will be received by Young Singers’ CEO, Beth Clark, on March 22nd at the Muse Awards Ceremony at the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts.
This makes the fourth Muse award for the Young Singers of the Palm Beaches. The children’s cultural organization won their first Muse Award in 2010 when they were recognized as Arts Program of the Year and their second award was also that year, as Executive Director Beth Clark won as Palm Beach County’s Cultural Leader of the Year.
