Kevin Kopsco is a 27-year-old autistic musician and student at The Boston Conservatory who has been playing music for 20 years and composing music for over a decade. He has written over 100 songs and pieces, composed two full-length operas/musicals with six more in the works, and can sing, play piano, and play other types of keyboard instruments. Last year, he produced and performed in the live performance of Part I of his original musical, “Tinn Kisten” with Berklee and Boston Conservatory students at Berklee College of Music. After a life of confusion and struggles, Kevin was diagnosed with autism at the age of 23. Through music, he has found a therapy that has helped him immensely in developing personally and professionally.
