Michael Schachter

composer, pianist, and scholar



The Black Clown is named to “Best of 2019” lists by the New Yorker (Alex Ross), New York Magazine, and Limelight Magazine.

After a sold-out premiere run at the American Repertory Theater in the fall of 2018, The Black Clown received its New York premiere July 24–27 at Lincoln Center’s Gerald W. Lynch Theater, as part of the 2019 Mostly Mozart Festival.

The Knoxville Symphony and the Knoxville Museum of Art have co-commissioned a new concerto for Grammy-nominated violinist Philippe Quint, based on the glass installation “Cycle of Life” by artist Richard Jolley.
**Due to COVID-19, the concerto will premiere on a future program TBD**

In the fall of 2019, Michael began a three-year term as Junior Fellow at the Harvard University Society of Fellows.
