ARTISTIC HONOREE



GERMAINE FRANCO is an Oscar-nominated composer, music producer, percussionist and educator who combines her passion for music with her technical and orchestral expertise across a multitude of projects. Franco is the first woman to score a Disney animated feature film with 2021's Encanto, for which she received an Academy Award nomination for Best Original Score, an SCL Award for Outstanding Original Score, an Annie Award for Best Music in a Feature, a Grammy Award win for Best Score Soundtrack for Visual Media (including Film and Television) and a Billboard Music Award for Best Soundtrack.

Germaine co-wrote and produced five of Coco's six original songs with co-director, Adrian Molina, including "Un Poco Loco" and "Proud Corazón", and provided additional music. In 2018, Univision celebrated her work as one of "15 Latinas Who Are Changing The World As We Know It," alongside Rita Moreno and Emma Gonzalez. Franco is an advocate of music education and serves on the Advisory Board for Women In Media and The Neighborhood Music School.

Germaine's work is heard in concert halls around the world including the Walt Disney Concert Hall with the Los Angeles Master Chorale, the Puerto Rico Symphony, the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, the National Symphony Orchestra, the Chicago Philharmonic, among others. Franco holds both a bachelor's and master's degree in Music from the Rice Shepherd School of Music.


PHILANTHROPIC HONOREE

The LA Arts Recovery Fund was created to provide support to small and mid-sized nonprofit arts and cultural organizations in LA County as they rebuild and re-imagine a new path forward, providing grants and resources to assist with long-term recovery. In 2021, after raising over $40 million from more than 25 local and national contributors, the Fund awarded 90 organizations unrestricted, multi-year general operating support grants. The nonprofit grant recipients span visual arts, theater, music, dance, literary arts, and arts education and demonstrate exceptional regional and local significance in LA County.
