Join Orchestra Iowa and the African American Museum of Iowa for a free panel discussion on Tuesday, March 7 at 6:00pm, titled Creative Intersections: Encouraging Diversity in Classical Music.

The issue of diversity in classical music has been receiving a great deal of attention the past 5 years, and with Branford Marsalis headlining our season at Orchestra Iowa this year, there was a tremendous opportunity to open this conversation in the Eastern Iowa Corridor.

Our panel will be moderated by Alliant Energy’s Anne Carter. Panelists include:

  • Andrea Alert, violist and music educator
  • Tim Hankewich, Music Director at Orchestra Iowa
  • Jim Hirsch, CEO at Chicago Sinfonietta
  • William LaRue Jones, Director of Orchestral Activities at University of Iowa
  • Damani Phillips, Assistant Professor of Music and African American Studies, University of Iowa

I hope you can join us on Tuesday, March 7 at 6:00pm at the African American Museum of Iowa to help spur a robust conversation on this important topic for our region.
