An international cast of students will perform the timeless music of A. R. Rahman, the prolific Grammy-winning and Academy Award-winning composer (Slumdog Millionaire, 127 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.
“My two favorites are Ray—and Donna McElroy,” says Berklee Vice President for Special Programs Rob Rose of the song’s interpreters. “Both are different. McElroy is one of the best singers I’ve ever heard in my life.”
