Guest Master Class: Jeremy Smith, percussion

Wednesday, October 4, 2017

4:45pm, Earl V. Moore Building, Hankinson Rehearsal Hall


Jeremy Smith is a percussive artist whose unique versatility allows him to move seamlessly among numerous musical worlds. While the foundation of his playing comes from his classical training at Juilliard, his interests lie in the vast array of modern and folkloric hand percussion traditions from all around the world, especially those found in South America, the Middle East, India, and Africa. In 2016, he was invited to the International Percussion Festival in Seoul, South Korea as a solo world percussion concert artist. He has performed and/or recorded with groups and musicians such as Latin Grammy nominee Luisito Quintero, New York Gypsy All-Stars, Jorge Glem, Terraza 7 Big Band, Festejation, Nashaz, Aimua Eghobamien, Bil Afrah Project, Brooklyn Nomads, Zāna, and many more. He performs and tours regularly with the Boston-based exotica global jazz quintet Mr. Ho’s Orchestrotica and New York handpan artist Adam Maalouf and his group project, Future Tribe. Smith received his BM degree from The Juilliard School as a student of Gordon Gottlieb and Markus Rhoten. Presented with the support of the Charles Owen Memorial Guest Artist Fund.
