Featured Keynote Artist
Based in NYC, Iain S. Forrest, known as Eyeglasses, is a singer-songwriter and classically trained cellist who composes pop-rock music built on soaring melodies and lush string sounds that find their sonic influence from the classical genre. Eyeglasses was originally started by Iain and fellow classically trained musician, Francis Kang, in 2013. The two high schoolers took to the streets of cities across the D.C. metropolitan area, performing contemporary songs for two cellos. Iain is now a medical student at Mount Sinai, NYC, and performs at weddings, restaurants, parties, charity and public concerts across the area.
