Gregg M. Simon, Chair of the firm's Wealth Transfer & Succession Planning practice group, has been elected President of the International Music Foundation (IMF). Gregg has been actively involved with the organization for more than 10 years.

Founded in Chicago in 1979, the IMF is dedicated to providing music performances and music education—free of charge—for people of all ages and degrees of musical awareness. This principle of accessibility has guided the organization since the beginning, and the IMF now presents more than 500 concerts a year, all of them free. The organization's best-known programs are the Do-It-Yourself Messiah, the Dame Myra Hess Memorial Concerts and the Live Music Now! in-school concert series.
