Our artists Piroozi, Tara, Cyrus and Liley need no introduction. They are honored to play in concert with Neville Bharucha.

Neville, a child prodigy who is now 22, exhibited an inclination for western classical music and started piano lessons when he was 4. By age 7, he was composing original short pieces and at age 9, Neville gave his first public piano recital at the Alliance Francaise de Banglore, which included ten of his own compositions.

His outstanding performance in the Trinity College 8th Grade Piano exam won him the Capt. Alvares Trophy for Excellence at the age of 14 in 2006. He has won several prizes including the prestigious Peter Coelho Memorial Award for Music in 2002, 2004 and 2008. His talent is not limited to classical music and he is also part of the live music support for Liela Alvares’ much acclaimed Broadway musicals. Neville recently obtained his Masters in Music Performance from the University of Southampton and is currently pursuing an MA in Composing from the City University, London.

Teachers and musicians unanimously agree, Neville is blessed with perfect pitch and he is “exceptionally gifted”.
