Lorraine Goodman

Executive Director

Lorraine Goodman, a soprano with experience in opera and musicals, received her undergraduate degree from Princeton University and subsequently pursued a career in theatre, appearing as a soloist at Carnegie Hall and in leading roles in opera (Violetta in La Traviata, Musetta in La Bohéme, and the title role in Floyd’s Susannah), on Broadway (The Mystery of Edwin Drood, Les Misérables, and Terrence McNally’s Master Class, where she covered the role originally played by six-time Tony Award-winning Audra McDonald), and overseas where she starred in Cats (Vienna, Austria) and Phantom of the Opera (Hamburg, Germany). While in Germany, Lorraine joined the founding faculty of The Stella Academy, teaching private voice and musical theater performance.

In 2011, Ms. Goodman returned to school and received her Master’s in Performing Arts Administration at NYU Steinhardt. Her subsequent professional administration experience started at The Red Hot Organization and was followed by stints at the New York Musical Festival, Roulette Intermedium, and Princeton AlumniCorps, each with increasing responsibilities. In mid-2020, at the height of the COVID pandemic, Lorraine stepped in as the Interim Executive Director at the Latin American Legal Defense Fund and helped steer the organization through the crisis, paying off its mortgage, doubling individual contributions, and expanding its budget from under $600,000 to one just over $1,000,000.

Lorraine says she is honored to join WMA and return to her music roots, where once again she can thrill to the sounds of voices raised in harmony.
