Holding artist diplomas from Indiana University and The Julliard School, Murray is known for showcasing new music, focusing on works by people of color. She received the 2012 Sphinx Medal of Excellence, which the Sphinx Organization bestows to “extraordinary Black and Latinx musicians.”

“Like many of our performance faculty, she will remain active as a concert artist both in the United States and abroad,” Yale Dean Robert Blocker this week said.

Murray went to Instagram, sharing the news of her appointment, stating that she is ecstatic to be joining the Yale School of Music Faculty, toting the hashtag #ProfessorTai.
