Brian Q. Silver (sitar), after graduating from Harvard College in 1964, went to India under a Fulbright grant to learn sitar with the late Ustad Ghulamhusain Khan of the Indore Gharana (musical tradition). He returned to the U.S. in 1966, continuing his study in subsequent visits to his teacher in India, and has since appeared in concert and in radio and television broadcasts in India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Dubai, Egypt, Morocco, Dubai, Egypt, Europe, Great Britain, Canada, Central and South America, and throughout the United States. In 1988 he was awarded the honorary title "Khan Sahib" by the All Pakistan Music Conference, and was given that organization's 1989 gold medal for performance. 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.

He earned his Ph.D. from the University of Chicago, and has taught Urdu language and literature, Indian music, South Asian culture, and world and contemporary American music at the University of Minnesota, the University of Chicago, Harvard University, Duke University, and most recently at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville. He has also lectured at a wide range of colleges and universities in the U.S. and abroad, and has written in a variety of forms, on South Asian, Iranian, and Middle Eastern music and musical culture.
In the summer of 2006, he composed and performed original incidental music for, and appeared in a minor acting role in, the Washington Shakespeare Theatre’s eight-week production of Love’s Labor’s Lost in the Landsburg Theatre in Washington; in a subsequent ten-day run at the Royal Shakespeare Company in Stratford-Upon-Avon; and in a final series of performances in 2007 at the Carter-Barron Amphitheatre as part of Washington’s “Shakespeare in the Park.�
