The title is the highest honor bestowed upon former Music Academy directors.

A Santa Barbara resident for 37 years, Lynn became an ardent Music Academy supporter through her involvement with the Women’s Auxiliary of the Music Academy of the West more than a decade ago. An eager volunteer ever since, she and her husband, Dr. John Lynn, have been dedicated members of the academy’s Council of Contributors since 2002.

“I am deeply honored to receive this recognition from the Music Academy,” said Lynn, a native of Michigan. “I am especially grateful for the opportunity to serve the academy mission benefiting talented young classical musicians and enriching the Santa Barbara community.”

A Music Academy board director from 2003 to 2012, Lynn served as second vice chair in 2010 and 2011, Advancement Committee chair from 2006 to 2011, and Council of Contributors chair from 2006 to 2012.

“I can tell you from firsthand experience that Georgia has worked with admirable diligence and great passion on behalf of the Music Academy,” Music Academy board chair Robert Toledo said. “This is a fitting tribute for an invaluable member of the extended academy family.”

Lynn was named emeritus director at the Music Academy board meeting on March 26.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
