Jewish Vocational Services (JVS) Celebrates 75th Anniversary with Special Musical Event


EAST ORANGE, NJ - The Jewish Vocational Services (JVS) will celebrate seventy-five years of dedicated service with a musical treat from Matt Savage on Thursday November 6, 2014 7:30 PM at Temple B'nai Abraham in Livingston, NJ.

Matt Savage is a musical savant diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder. Within two years of teaching himself to play the piano he was working with such musical greats as Dave Brubeck and Chick Corea. 

While developing his musical talents, Matt worked to improve his social and communication skills, frequently a difficult task for people with autism. His hard work and family support led to numerous performances and personal appearances, creating a wonderful transition between the musical and spoken word. In 2003, at the age of 11, Matt debuted at the famed Blue Note in Manhattan and was signed as a Bosendorfer Piano artist. Since then, Matt has performed for worldwide audiences in solo concerts and with his own Matt Savage Trio.

A graduate of Berklee College of Music in Boston, Matt is currently pursuing a master’s degree at the Manhattan School of Music in New York City. He recently released his 9th album, Matt Savage: A Bigger Celebration.
