Primary Instrument: Piano

Marc Rossi

Marc Rossi’s ambitious genre-transcending career and inclusive compositions led Down Beat magazine to call him “one of the dynamic few whose musical and cultural awareness travels exponentially in many different directions.” A versatile contemporary classical composer, jazz composer and pianist, and educator, Rossi has been a vital part of the rich Boston music scene since the early 1980’s. He is a 20-year veteran of the jazz and contemporary classical worlds, a longtime student of both Hindustani and Carnatic Indian music and full-time Associate Professor of Piano and Jazz Composition at Boston’s Berklee College of Music.
