The Peabody Institute of the Johns Hopkins University welcomes music industry thought leaders Aaron Dworkin, Blair Tindall, Alex Ross, and Peter Sellars as featured speakers in the 2016-17 Dean’s Symposium Series. Launched last year, the Dean’s Symposium Series provides a platform for conversation about the future of music and the issues facing professional musicians today. All four planned events will be free and open to the public, as well as available to view online via live stream.

“These four guests are among the most innovative, forward-thinking artists and leaders out there,” notes Fred Bronstein, dean of the Peabody Institute. “As practitioners and writers, to a person, they are clear-eyed and insightful about the challenges facing our industry and bold in their work to advance music. I’m very much looking forward to engaging our community in these important conversations.”

The series begins on Monday, October 10, with Aaron Dworkin, an alumnus of the Peabody Preparatory who is now the dean of the University of Michigan’s School of Music, Theatre and Dance. He was named a MacArthur Fellow in 2005, is a former member of the National Arts Policy Committee, and was President Obama’s first appointment to the National Council on the Arts. Dean Dworkin founded the Dworkin Foundation where he serves as chairman of the board. He is also the founder of The Sphinx Organization, a leading national arts organization for transforming lives through the power of diversity and the arts. A multi-media performing artist, author, social entrepreneur, artist-citizen, and educator, he continually receives extensive national recognition for his leadership and service to communities.
