Kennedy Center hires Jen Luzzo as director of public relations for classical music

Posted on: August 8, 2022

“Jen Luzzo has been hired by the Kennedy Center to oversee classical music public relations,” writes Nicholas Beard in Friday’s (8/5) Musical America (subscription required). “Previously in a related position with the New York Philharmonic, she arrived at the KenCen last week and has a portfolio that includes the Washington National Opera (WNO), the National Symphony Orchestra (NSO), the Fortas Chamber Music series, all music education activities—of which there are many—and initiatives that explore the intersection of music and wellness. Luzzo reports to Eileen Andrews, VP of public relations at the Kennedy Center, but will be working with NSO Executive Director Gary Ginstling (ironically, leaving for the NY Philharmonic in the fall to succeed Deborah Borda as CEO) and WNO General Manager Timothy O’Leary. Luzzo studied music and broadcast journalism at Syracuse University.”
