The Music Maestro, Magician of Tunes, and so many adjectives define the man – A.R. Rahman. In recognition of his two-decades-long musical legacy, he is going to receive honorary doctorate from Berklee.
The prestigious Berklee College of Music is all set o honour Oscar-winning composer A.R.Rahman with an honorary doctorate. The honour will be conferred on Rahman, 47, best known globally for the original scores and songs in ‘Slumdog Millionaire’, ‘127 Hours’, ‘Elizabeth: The Golden Age’, and ‘Million Dollar Arm’, at an event at the Berklee College of Music on October 24.
“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 honoured the college is graciously establishing a scholarship in my name for future generations of musicians to follow their dreams,” he added.
At a concert celebrating his career on October 24, 2014, Boston, students and faculty will perform songs paying tribute to his distinguished work, with Rahman performing alongside them for select pieces. He will also conduct a master class at the Berklee Performance Centre.
In honour of Rahman’s new relationship with Berklee, the college will establish a scholarship in his name to help bring students from India to Berklee.
The Maestro makes the country proud again!
