Jamshied Sharifi '83, Tony Award Winner

Sharifi is a composer, musician, and former MIT visiting artist who received a 2018 Tony Award for best orchestrations on the record-breaking Broadway hit “The Band’s Visit.” Sharifi will present current works in a talk with a question and answer session.

Sharifi graduated from MIT with a degree in humanities, and then went on to study at Berklee College of Music, where he studied jazz piano and composition. His Middle Eastern music influences give his music a distinctive feel that is enhanced by the technological advances he developed at MIT.

In collaboration with MIT Music and Theater Arts.

When I say music the first person came in to my mind if Jamshied Sharifi he sings from heart not from mouth. I love his every song and would love to listen more from him and this website help me a lot to find out useful material and writing tips to improve my writing style. So thank you very much for sharing the location of the place where he gets his award and by going there and see him taking the award I feel motivated.
