"...to provide an environment that would enrich the synergistic and essential relationship between thought and performance, idea and artistry." - Artist-in-Residence Program mission
The Artist-in-Residence program at the Institute for Advanced Study was established in 1994 to create a musical presence within the Institute community. In 2007, the concert series was named in honor of the late Edward T. Cone, a distinguished composer, musical scholar, and Princeton University Professor who had longstanding ties to the Institute. The Institute announced the appointment of composer Sebastian Currier as Artist-in-Residence beginning July 1, 2013, succeeding composer and clarinetist Derek Bermel.
