    Matt Savage Playing Piano

    Sudbury Massachusetts native Matt Savage performs on the Kennedy Center Millennium stage April 2, 2013 at 6pm.  The performance will be broadcast live via webcast.

    First labeled a "jazz prodigy" at age 8, Matt Savage, now 20, has been connected with some of the biggest names in jazz over the 12 years of his remarkable career.  He has been heralded by Dave Brubeck as "amazing" and "another Mozart", and by Chick Corea as "delightful and inspiring".  He has performed, on stage and in jam sessions, with the Ellington All Stars, Chaka Khan, Wynton Marsalis, Joshua Redman, Clark Terry, and Chick Corea, just to name a few.  Savage's impressive roster of performances includes such venues as the famed Blue Note and Birdland in New York, the New Orleans Jazz Festival, and at the prestigious Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola at Jazz at Lincoln Center.

    Matt's media appearances include Late Night with Conan O'Brien, Marian McPartland's prestigious Piano Jazz series on NPR, and The Late Show with David Letterman.  A recent graduate of Berklee College of Music, Matt performed at Boston venues such as the renowned Regattabar, while excelling in his studies.  In May of 2012, The Boston Globe heralded Matt's success with a front page cover story.  The article, entitled "Growing Into His Gift, And Into Life", described Matt's navigation through autism, college, and a career.
