Sounds of Hope Project is happy to welcome Lauren Haas Amanfoh to its board to guide the board with its development and business efforts, as well as marketing, promotion and funding.
Before Lauren Haas Amanfoh became the president of Royalton Music Center, she was answering the phones at age 3 and writing rental contracts at 10. She was the little girl who literally grew up in a music store—and now is continuing her grandfather’s and mother’s legacies of excellence into a third generation at Royalton Music Center.
A magna cum laude graduate of The Ohio State University, Lauren is a consummate musician and has performed professionally on French horn at Carnegie Hall, The Hollywood Bowl, Severance Hall and across Europe. She also plays piano and bass guitar. Lauren worked in New York City at Columbia Artists for some of the biggest names in the classical and dance world today and helped launch the careers of musicians through the Young Concert Artists series at Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center and The Kennedy Center prior to becoming the President of RMC. In 2009, this North Royalton High School valedictorian moved back home to help music makers young and old and expanded the family business once again. She was delighted to be named as Ohio’s only NAMM Top 100 Dealer 4 years running and receive a special nomination in the Best Clinics & Events category, as well.
“We care about our customers, the community, quality instruments and unparalleled education,” Lauren said. “It makes me happy every time someone discovers the joy of music.”
