“A master of music and medicine.” The Today Show

“The skid row community is one of the most vibrant, artistic communities in America today... The work of Street Symphony is for us to be a conduit. My work is not to empower people or help them find their voice. There is a voice here – and it’s a vital, resilient, brave voice.” – Vijay Gupta

The recipient of a MacArthur Fellowship, Vijay Gupta is a celebrated violinist, speaker and citizen artist devoted to creating spaces of wholeness through music. He is the founder of Street Symphony, an L.A.-based nonprofit that brings music to homeless and incarcerated communities, and co-founder of the Skid Row Arts Alliance. Gupta has performed as a recitalist, soloist, chamber and orchestral musician for over 20 years, and his TED Talk, “Music is Medicine, Music is Sanity,” has garnered millions of views.
