Getting into the NYU Tisch School of Arts would be the dream of many an aspiring artist or multi talented creative person from right across the nation. And some of them make it, despite it being super difficult getting into such a prestigious school of performing arts. But once you’re in there’s the very best to enjoy, Pharrell Williams, gracing your chosen Alma Mater with his presence as Artist-in-Residence for the next year.
This year is the School’s 50th Anniversary and Pharrell’s stint is to honor this event. To kick it all off there’s a discussion of Pharrell’s career on October 26th at 7.30 pm at New York City Hall. So far only students, faculty and staff are allowed to attend but there’s going to be some giveaway tickets so on Twitter follow @NPR Music and @NPRandB for details on how tog et them.
Needless to say Tisch graduates are distributed far and wide across the performing arts, think Lady Gaga, Martin Scorsese, James Franco and Kristen Bell.
