“Tyshawn is a phenomenal, multi-faceted artist who I've followed for years, especially during his time at Columbia University, where he recently completed his Doctorate in Musical Arts. I am thrilled that audiences will get to experience his unrivaled artistry in this Portrait, both as a performer and composer.” —Melissa Smey
