Posted on: July 27, 2011

Two prominent classical music educators were recently identified by the Obama Administration as “Champions of Change.” Aaron Dworkin, founder and president of the Sphinx Organization, which seeks to increase minority opportunities in classical music, and Cleveland Orchestra Director of Education and Community Engagement Joan Katz Napoli joined twelve other arts education advocates in a roundtable discussion about the future of arts education in America.

The “Champions of Change” program invites innovators and prominent advocates in their respective fields to weekly discussions at the White House, focusing on topics as wide ranging as fighting AIDS, immigrant integration, and clean energy, among others.
