WASHINGTON >> Cellist Yo-Yo Ma and soprano Renee Fleming will host the Kennedy Center's Arts Summit.

The center announced in a news release that its annual summit designed to bring leaders from the arts and related fields together will be held April 25. The summit is being presented in collaboration with the Aspen Institute Arts Program and Seattle-based Citizen University.

The center says this year's summit will serve as a blueprint for the Kennedy Center's celebration of President John F. Kennedy's 100th birthday. The summit will focus on the idea of citizen artistry and using the arts to make positive change in people's lives. The center says participants will examine the idea and possible applications in today's society through ideals Kennedy set forth: innovation, creativity, courage, community service and social justice.
