Aaron P. & Afa S. Dworkin
Outstanding Service Medal
Aaron P. Dworkin is one-half of the Dworkin arts couple. He is a a force! Hear the story of how he turned his personal experience as a young black violinist, acutely aware of the lack of diversity both on stage and in the audience in concert halls into a movement -- but not before engaging his life partner Afa Sadykhly Dworkin of Sphinx Organization. Aaron tells his story on creative:impact. Listen hear.
Afa Sadykhly Dworkin puts the dynamic in the Aaron P. & Afa S.Dworkin duo receiving our Outstanding Service Medal 2019. She is changing the world for musicians of color around the globe. Artistic and executive director of the Sphinx Organization, Afa takes us on her journey beginning in Azerbaijan with stops in Ann Arbor, Detroit and Davos, Switzerland along the way. Listen here!
