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.
