An international cast of students will perform the timeless music of A. R. Rahman, the prolific Grammy-winning and Academy Award-winning composer (Slumdog Millionaire127 Hours) and performer. Rahman will receive an honorary doctor of music degree from Berklee and join the Berklee musicians to perform several of his memorable songs.

In conjunction with the new Berklee India Exchange, proceeds will be used to create a fund in A. R. Rahman’s name to provide scholarship support for students from India to attend Berklee.

“I’m deeply moved to receive an honorary doctorate from such a distinguished school which has contributed so much to the world of music,” said Rahman. “I’m especially proud and honored the college is graciously establishing a scholarship in my name for future generations of musicians to follow their dreams.”

“A friend from India described A.R. Rahman to me as John Williams and Sting rolled into one – a leading film composer and a wildly popular, brilliant songwriter and performer,” said Berklee president Roger H. Brown. “We welcome him to Berklee, where the college and our students look forward to paying our respects.”
