Dr. Michael Braz is an internationally known performer, composer, educator and 2009 Averitt Center Legend in the Arts honoree. For over 50 years, his pianistic and teaching skills—combined with a natural sense of curiosity and fascination—have served to make music and musicianship accessible to children and adults on three continents. As he observes, “when I sit down at a piano, something exhilarating happens—it’s the way I communicate ideas and emotions to others.” Professor Emeritus of Music at Georgia Southern University and the Principal Keyboard with the Savannah Philharmonic, Braz has collaborated in thousands of performances with a host of soloists and musical ensembles.
