Praised by the BBC as "the greatest living exponent of the electric violin," Tracy Silverman's groundbreaking work with the 6-string electric violin defies musical boundaries. The world's first concert electric violinist, Silverman was recently named one of the most distinguished alumni by The Julliard School. Formerly the first violinist with the innovative Turtle Island String Quartet, Silverman premiered a new concerto by legendary composer Terry Riley with the Nashville Symphony at Carnegie Hall in 2012. Silverman has worked with a who's-who of rock, new music, and jazz, including Pulitzer winner John Adams, who composed his electric violin concerto, "The Dharma at Big Sur," specifically for Tracy, recorded on Nonesuch Records with the BBC Symphony. Silverman tours internationally as a soloist with orchestras, with his one-man performances and as a collaborator with many other artists and chamber ensembles. Tracy teaches at Belmont University and Vanderbilt University and lives in Nashville, TN.
