SKU: EastmanCaseStudiesTN-LaraDownes-RC15900 Categories: , Tag:


Lara Downes is not only a concert pianist sponsored by Yamaha; she is an artist who aims to use her talent and experience for social good. Her albums America Again (2016) and For Lenny (2018) reflect inspiration she has drawn from both major and neglected figures in American music. Public service and social justice have been a reliable part of Lara’s musical tours. Lara has now organized a partnership with children’s rights advocate Plan International and her sponsor Yamaha. The case challenges the reader to strengthen this promising partnership and propose ideas for global reach of the program.
