"Aaron A. Flagg, a professional trumpet player and music educator who has served as executive director of the Music Conservatory of Westchester since July 2005, has been named dean of The Hartt School. Flagg, who has a dynamic career in performance, music administration and music education, will assume his new role on June 30, said University of Hartford President Walter Harrison and Provost Lynn Pasquerella in a joint statement. 'Dr. Flagg brings tremendous intelligence, charisma, and enthusiasm to the position. We are very excited to welcome one of the best known young leaders in the arts into the University of Hartford community,' said Pasquerella.

"Flagg is a professional trumpet player whose diverse performance experience includes concerto and recital performances, as well as orchestral and chamber music experiences. He received his undergraduate and master’s degrees from The Juilliard School and his doctorate from the University of Michigan. At the Music Conservatory of Westchester, Flagg oversaw all aspects of this community school of the arts, including its individual and group instruction in music, musical theater, music therapy for all ages, arts-in-education programs for area schools, summer programs, and the “Live on Central” concert series. He directed the school’s strategic planning process, secured the largest donation in the school’s history, and added innovative programs such as a Vocal Academy and Hip Hop ensemble. Flagg created fall and spring open house Conservatory events with tours, teaching demonstrations, and student performances to showcase the school’s offerings to the community." [Full Post]
