Brian Q. Silver
Brian Q. Silver began his study of the sitar with the late Ghulamhusain Khan of the Bande Ali Khan Gharana on Fulbright Grants in India from 1964-66, and since that time has performed widely both in the U.S. and abroad. For his performance, he has received grants from the D.C. Commission on the Arts and Humanities and the National Endowment for the Arts, as well as the honorary title Khan Sahib from the All Pakistan Music Conference. He holds a Ph.D. from the University of Chicago, and has taught courses in Indian classical music at the Universities of Minnesota, Chicago, and Virginia, as well as at Duke and, most extensively, at Harvard (1974-83). As founder and Executive Director of International Music Associates (est. 1982), he has organized major national tours for the late Ustad Vilayat Khan, Ustad Imrat Khan, the late Ustad Asad Ali Khan, and has assisted the Gundecha Brothers in their many visits to the U.S. Occasionally, when reckless sentiments overcome him, he has been know to bring forth a poem which attempts to capture the spirit of a particular raga.

"Unfortunately, even though the Bihar Brothers' visa application was approved in a timely fashion by USCIS in the US, the interviewing officer in India declined to approve the visa application," Dr. Brian Q. Silver, Executive Director, International Music Associates, based in Washington, DC, wrote to The American Bazaar, adding that they hoped to reschedule another tour next fall.
"We very much regret having to cancel this very promising tour, but this decision by the U.S. Consular Office in India leaves us no choice. We hope to schedule another tour next fall," wrote Silver.

In 1991, 1996, and 2004, he was recognized for his sitar artistry by the D.C. Commission on the Arts and Humanities and the National Endowment for the Arts.
