About the Artist-in-Residence Program at Columbia’s Zuckerman Institute
Columbia’s Zuckerman Institute is committed to creating a dynamic and exciting environment for the exploration of the mind and brain. Advances in a field as wide as brain science necessitate an approach that transcends disciplines and boundaries. To foster a connection between music and sciences, Columbia’s Zuckerman Institute has established the Jazz Artist-in-Residence program. This program sponsors musical artists for a period of engagement, inspiration and discovery at the Institute. The inaugural Jazz Artist-in-Residence was generously supported by Alan Kanzer.
