Lara Downes’ musical style strives to create experiences that bring 19th and 20th century traditions firmly into the present for 21st century audiences. Her style has been described as a combination of both classical and eclectic, blending many traditions, styles, cultures,  and genres.

Born in San Francisco and raised in Europe, Lara's ancestry is a mix of African American and Eastern European backgrounds. Lara takes inspiration from musicians that who inspire her, from Leonard Bernstein to Nina Simone.

A laureate of the 2016 Sphinx Medal of Excellence award, Lara has been recognized as a leader in expanding the reach of the arts, as a performer, an entrepreneur, and a cultural visionary.

Lara enjoys creative collaborations with a range of artists, including cellist Yo-Yo Ma, roots singer Rhiannon Giddens, beatboxer Kevin "K.O." Olusola and former United States Poet Laureate Rita Dove. Her partnerships with prominent composers span genres and generations to bring significant new contributions to the piano repertoire

Her 2018 Sony Music debut album For Lenny, a Leonard Bernstein centennial tribute, was awarded the 2017 Classical Recording Foundation Award. The album was released February 2018, following a unique serial pre-release of episodes featuring individual tracks, podcasts, and behind-the-scenes videos.

Come and experience Lara’s artistry firsthand on June 4 in the in WGBH’s acoustically pristine Fraser Performance Studio.

After her performance, we will have a beer and wine dessert reception with light refreshments.
