Ian Rosenbaum, percussion

Praised for his “spectacular performances” (Wall Street Journal), and his “unfailing virtuosity” (Chicago Tribune), Ian is a GRAMMY®-nominated percussionist who has developed a musical breadth far beyond his years. As a passionate advocate for contemporary music, Ian has premiered over one hundred new chamber and solo works. He has collaborated with and championed the music of established and emerging composers alike. Ian was nominated for three GRAMMY® awards in 2021 for his performances on albums of music by Andy Akiho and Christopher Cerrone, including two nominations for Seven Pillars, an album by Sandbox Percussion released on Aki Rhythm Productions, a record label that Ian and Andy founded in 2021. In 2012, he joined the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center’s Bowers Program (formerly CMS Two) as only the second percussionist they have selected in their history and has performed regularly with CMS since then. Ian is a founding member of Sandbox Percussion, the Percussion Collective, and the Pittsburgh New Music Ensemble.
