Omari Rush

Executive Director, CultureSource
Detroit, Michigan

Omari Rush has a continually expanding role of service as an artistic administrator and community leader. He has served in an advisory role for organizations of varying cultural and geographic scopes: as vice chair of the governor-appointed State of Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs, as a member of national advisory committees for the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts and Association of Performing Arts Professionals, and as chair of the board of directors for the Ann Arbor Public Schools Educational Foundation.

Omari earned degrees in music from the University of Michigan and Florida State University, and though he no longer performs as a clarinetist, Omari enjoys using his voice to co-host an arts-focused radio show on WEMU-FM, to recite Robert Frost poems, and to place orders for his favorite fermented foods and drinks.
