Aug 24, 2015

Annette Mozzoni, director of education & music school at the Rhode Island Philharmonic Orchestra and Music School (RIPO&MS), has been selected as one of 17 arts leaders to participate in a national adaptive leadership program created by EmcArts. The program, entitled, Arts Leaders as Cultural Innovators (ALACI), is a leadership development program for individual change-makers in the arts and cultural sector. Launched in spring 2015, ALACI is a rigorous 18-month program that inspires, trains, and equips "rising influencers" in the field to facilitate adaptive change processes within their own organizations and across their communities.

Mozzoni was selected by application to participate in the first Cohort of ALACI leaders, along with four other cultural leaders from Rhode Island. Their participation runs from March 2015 through October 2016, and includes 12 leaders from three additional communities – Tucson and Phoenix, Arizona; and the Greater Washington DC area.

RIPO&MS executive director David Beauchesne remarked that “Annette was selected by EmcArts and the Foundation due to her exceptional work expanding access to music education in Rhode Island. As the leader of our Music School and our Orchestra’s other education programs, she has created meaningful partnerships across the community and beyond. She has expanded our adaptive music program from an impact of 40 students to more than 500 through partnerships with the Bradley Hospital and CVS.”
