Managing Editor of Arizona Health & Living Magazine Lynette Carrington is teaming up with Ari Levin, executive director at The Madison Center for the Arts, to create a new podcast focused on performing arts, music, dance, film and more.
The podcast, which is coined “The Arts Scene Podcast with Lynette and Ari,” seeks to engage listeners into all facets of the arts scene in Phoenix and beyond including information about upcoming performances and productions, surprise celebrity guests, and an additional component covering education and philanthropy.
The Arts Scene Podcast with Lynette and Ari will officially be released on Sept. 27 on every podcast platform and will continue on a weekly basis every Tuesday thereafter, according to a press release.
Ms. Carrington and Mr. Levin say they are excited to speak with high-level executives, decision makers, and creatives from the worlds of theatre, dance, music, film, and related productions on the show. The current line-up includes acclaimed actor Lee Arenberg; Ballet Arizona’s Director of Marketing Mallory Porter; and the Principal Conductor of the Phoenix Symphony, Tito Muñoz.
“I look forward to giving listeners in-depth insight into the arts and the intricacies of how productions are brought to the stage and screen during interviews with key people in the industry,” said Mr. Levin in a prepared statement.
“I love that this podcast delves into interesting topics in the arts world and gives everyone a ‘peek-behind-the-curtain’ perspective at how theatres are using unique platforms to entertain and educate,” said Ms. Carrington. “I am thrilled that I get to co-host this podcast with such an accomplished executive director who has an incredible wealth of performing arts knowledge.”
The Arts Scene Podcast with Lynette and Ari is sponsored by the Wise Scholarship Program by The Steele Family Foundation and will be available on Apple, Spotify, iHeart, Audible, Stitcher, Google Podcasts, TheSteeleFamilyFoundation.com, and any other platform where podcasts are available.
