LaRue Allen, Executive Director of the Martha Graham Dance Company stated: “Paul Szilard played the decisive hand in the Martha Graham Dance Company’s 21st century’s renaissance.  He brought the troupe to the great opera houses in Europe and produced its performances in New York at the Joyce, Skirball Center and Rose Theaters. Paul joined us in 2005 and immediately booked the Company in Germany, Greece, the Netherlands, Italy, and Spain. He took the unusual step of joining our Board and has been one of our strongest supporters.  He is not only appreciated but deeply loved by all of us.”
