Lecolion Washington, the co-founder and Executive Director of Memphis' PRIZM Ensemble will become the new Executive Director of the Community Music Center of Boston.

Washington, who also serves as director of in-school programs for the Memphis Music Initiative, has described the transition as bittersweet. In a positive, forward-looking statement he announced that, "PRIZM’s core values — diversity, opportunity, and access – are much larger than its founders."

The Community Music Center of Boston is a 107-year-old nonprofit education hub, " where people of all ages and abilities share music as common ground, and where diversity, expression and self-transformation are the very air we breathe."

PRIZM's Director of Operations and Educational Programming Roderick Vester, will serve as interim executive director while the growing classical company conducts a national search for Washington's replacement.
