Lincoln Center Education, the education cornerstone of Lincoln Center and a global leader in arts education and advocacy, announced updates to the Next Stage event today, May 30, 2014 focused on music, and in partnership with the New York Philharmonic.
Violinist Midori, originally announced as moderator, with regret has withdrawn to attend to a minor but time sensitive health issue. Her replacement as moderator will be Dr. Aaron A. Flagg, Professor of Music, Dean of the Hartt School and Senior Advisor to the President on External Relations at the University of Hartford. Joining Dr. Flagg will be three panelists: Sarah Johnson (Director, Weill Music Institute at Carnegie Hall), Angélica Negrón (composer and New York Philharmonic Teaching Artist), and Paola Prestini (composer and Creative Director of Original Music Workshop).
Lincoln Center Education's Next Stage series was launched earlier this year, and features candid conversations on the intersection of arts and education in the careers of leading theater, dance, music, and visual artists.

The final event in this year's series will take place on June 10 and focus on visual art, moderated by Andrew Goldstein, Editor-in-Chief of Artspace. Events of the Next Stage discussion will be hosted and presented by Lincoln Center Education, in partnership with other leading New York City arts organizations.
