One of jazz’s leading spokesmen, vibraphonist-composer Stefon Harris is known for his passionate artistry, energetic stage presence and talent that he shares with audiences and students in venues such as Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Kennedy Center and the Sydney (Australia) Opera House.
A graduate of Manhattan School of Music, Harris currently teaches at New York University. He has recorded five CDs, received three Grammy nominations and a host of jazz awards, and toured with well-known artists, including Wynton Marsalis and David Sanborn, as well as Kenny Barron and Kurt Elling, who appeared at BU last year with Monterey Jazz Festival on Tour.
He will present a workshop for percussion students and a pre-curtain talk, “The State of the Art of Jazz in America,” one hour prior to curtain. Call the box office for details.
