Summary

Hello, my name is André Solomon (He/Him/His) and I am originally from Methuen, Massachusetts (a small town up north from Boston). With my studies, I have a Bachelor of Arts with a Flute concentration from Syracuse University and Masters degree in Arts Management from Carnegie Mellon University through Heinz College concentrating on Community Engagement. With both degrees, I hope to enforce social justice for the arts; a belief that the arts are not frivolous but a necessary component of human development. Since I am a minority in the Arts world, both as an artist and arts manager, I want to provide opportunities for people of color to visualize representation; therefore, ownership to actualize their dreams.

Job prospects lie in performing arts organizations either in Arts Education or Community Engagement while trying to balance a musical career on flute.

In Pittsburgh, I have the pleasure of co-directing Make Music PGH, which has its annual celebration on the Summer Solstice.
