To say that pianist Vijay Iyer covers the musical waterfront is quite possibly an understatement. His expertise ﬁnds him comfortably traversing from his namesake jazz trio to a hip-hop-rooted project with poet Mike Ladd to a classical album, Mutations. Vijay's eclecticism has not gone unnoticed. His talent has been praised by the New York Times, Chicago Tribune and Pitchfork. Last year, DownBeat magazine named him their Artist of the Year and in 2013 he was awarded a MacArthur Fellow "Genius Grant". Vijay is currently an Artist-In-Residence at the Metropolitan Museum of Art which will include multiple performances in a variety of settings along with curated works by fellow artists.
