“If you’re looking for the shape of jazz to come, here it is…” – Rolling Stone
Composer-pianist Vijay Iyer (pronounced “VID-jay EYE-yer”) has carved out a unique path as an influential, prolific, shape-shifting presence in modern music. He was described by Pitchfork as \”one of the best in the world at what he does,\” by The Los Angeles Weekly as “a boundless and deeply important young star,” by The New York Times as a “social conscience, multimedia collaborator, system builder, rhapsodist, historical thinker and multicultural gateway,” and by Minnesota Public Radio as “an American treasure.”
A musical innovator, active collaborator, and a member of multiple artistic communities, Iyer continues to reimagine the role of the musician in the 21st century. He has been voted DownBeat Magazine\’s “Artist of the Year” four times – in 2018, 2016, 2015 and 2012 – and “Artist of the Year” in Jazz Times\’ Critics\’ and Readers\’ Polls for 2017. Iyer was named a 2017 United States Artists Fellow, a 2013 MacArthur Fellow, and a 2012 Doris Duke Performing Artist. He holds a lifetime appointment as the Franklin D. and Florence Rosenblatt Professor of the Arts at Harvard University, with a joint affiliation with the Department of Music and the Department of African and African-American Studies.
ABOUT INDIAN HILL MUSIC
Now in its 34th year, Indian Hill Music is a thriving regional non-profit center for music education, performance, and community outreach. One of only a few organizations in the U.S. that combines a community music school, professional symphony orchestra, diverse concert series, and high-impact music philanthropy, Indian Hill Music serves 79 communities in Massachusetts and Southern New Hampshire. We believe that music inspires both our hearts and minds, encourages the growth of the whole person, and is integral to the lives of everyone we serve. Our mission – to share the transformative power of music, through teaching and performing, and giving music generously when there is need – reflects the impact of music on people’s lives, and its ability to strengthen, heal, and inspire. Indian Hill Music relies on the generosity of individuals, families, businesses, and foundations to support our programs. Learn more at (978) 486-9524 or www.indianhillmusic.org.
The programs of Indian Hill Music are supported in part by a grant from the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency, and with funds from the council administered by the Local Cultural Councils.
Construction is well underway on our future world-class music education and performance center. Set on a stunning landscape in Groton, Massachusetts, the concert experience in our acoustically superb 1,000-seat concert hall and 300-seat performance hall will be second to none. We are excitedly anticipating our opening in 2022, when we will bring you even more vibrant music experiences, designed to educate, energize, and enrich our communities.
