Lisa Hilton, jazz pianist, composer, and bandleader—and Paris and Nicky Hilton's aunt—visited Berklee's Adaptive Music Tech Lab for visually impaired students before her gig at the Regattabar in Cambridge August 4 to celebrate her new album, Underground. A supporter of music programs for students who are sight-challenged, Hilton performs clinics and benefit concerts for a number of schools across the country, including Perkins School for the Blind. In September, she'll play Berklee's Cafe 939 with Berklee student guitarist Noe Socha and John Castillo, a vocalist from Perkins.
