Not only is Hackman an accomplished and decorated musician, fully capable of producing a compelling piece of music, but it's clear that he loves the classical and pop elements with equal force.
Classical Radio Station
A multi-hyphenate music powerhouse and visionary producer, Steve Hackman is a daring voice leading the charge among a new generation of classical musicians intent on redefining the genre.
Equally adept in classical and popular styles, he is the creator of a production concept called FUSE, which synthesizes classical and popular masterworks. He has conducted these productions, like Brahms X. Radiohead and The Resurrection Mixtape (Mahler X Notorious BIG X Tupac Shakur), all over the world, including Philadelphia, Richmond, San Francisco, San Diego, Seattle, Colorado, Phoenix, and Grand Rapids Symphonies; Pittsburgh, Nashville, Symphony Orchestras; Colorado Music Festival; and the Boston Pops.
Hackman has teamed up with some of the biggest pop superstars of today to add a signature virtuosic and classical dimension to their work, including Kanye West, Doja Cat and Andrew Bird. He was trained at the Curtis Institute of Music and Juilliard School.
