Stephen Prutsman, piano

Stephen Prutsman has been described as one of the most innovative musicians of his time. Active as a classical, world and jazz pianist, composer and festival curator, Mr. Prutsman continues to explore and seek common ground in music of all cultures and languages. As a young man he performed with several art rock bands and was a regular on a nationally syndicated gospel television show. In the 1990s, Prutsman was a medal winner at the Tchaikovsky and Queen Elisabeth Competitions. He was artistic partner with the St.

Paul Chamber Orchestra and artistic director of the Cartagena International Music Festival. As a composer his music has been performed throughout the world by leading known classical and popular artists. Passionate for causes related to the needs of the developmentally disabled, Prutsman co-founded the non-profit organization “Autism Fun Bay Area” which creates “Azure” events: artistic and recreational environments for people on the autism spectrum and their families. These now occur regularly in many parts of the world.
