Riley Mulherkar has been recognized as a "smart young trumpet player" by The New York Times, praised by The Wall Street Journal as a "youngster to keep an eye on," and is a 2020 recipient of Lincoln Center's Emerging Artist Award for his work as "an original bandleader, composer, arranger, educator, community activist and advocate for jazz and the arts."
Riley works with a number of leading artists of our time, including Wynton Marsalis, Anna Deavere Smith, and Alan Cumming, and is a founding member of The Westerlies, a new music brass quartet that creates the rarest of hybrids: music that is both "folk-like and composerly, lovely and intellectually rigorous" (NPR Music). Riley also serves as Artistic Director at Joye in Aiken, bringing leading young talent to the historic city of Aiken, South Carolina. Born and raised in Seattle, Riley moved to New York in 2010 to study at The Juilliard School, where he completed his Bachelor's Degree in 2014 and his Master's in 2015. Riley is a faculty member of The College of Performing Arts at The New School, and is an Edwards Artist and performs on Edwards trumpets.
Christopher Icasiano opens the evening with a solo set.
