Teddy Geigercatapulted to stardom with the top-selling hit “For You I Will,” featured on Geiger’s critically acclaimed debut album, Underage Thinking, which entered the Billboard charts at No. 8 in 2006. Just 16 years old, Geiger launched a three-year international tour and grabbed the silver screen spotlight by starring opposite Emma Stone in 2008’s The Rocker, and playing the muse in the cult hit TV series Love Monkey.
A multi-instrumentalist and producer, Geiger’s sheer breadth of musicality imprints a bold stamp in the lexicon of American pop with his sophomore album, The Last Fears, which is available on iTunes. The self-produced album establishes the re-emergence of Geiger as a singer-songwriter at the forefront of the independent American music landscape, blending traditional pop structure with accents of electronica and ballads tinged with sounds as close to home as mandolins and steel guitars.
Geiger is a versatile songwriter and producer, and is a featured artist on Tiesto's forthcoming album, Clublife 3 Stockholm, with the single "Love and Run."

The Contemporary Middle Eastern Music Ensemble will play a variety of tunes from Turkey and the Arab world. These are contemporary arrangements that reflect a fusion of traditional Middle Eastern music with Western popular styles.
The Savory Collection are recordings from a series of 1930s-era radio broadcasts by an audio engineer named William Savory. Live performances given by some of the biggest names in jazz—including Louis Armstrong, Benny Goodman, and Billy Holiday—are the foundation of this massive compilation, a collection of nearly 1,000 discs.
These legendary concerts will receive thrillingly new and varied interpretations during an imaginative evening of music featuring two greats—violinist Matt Glaser, artistic director of Berklee's American Roots Music Program; and Trinidad-born trumpeter Etienne Charles, award-winning recording artist/assistant professor of jazz trumpet at the Michigan State University College of Music. Glaser and Charles are taking the classic sounds of Ellington, Basie, Waller, Goodman, Reinhardt, and others, and refracting them through their individual perspectives. Students from the American Roots Music Program will join some of Boston’s best players and National Jazz Museum in Harlem artistic director Loren Schoenberg.
