AZJHS Presents Emmet Cohen in Concert – Virtual online performance
June 6, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm$15
Multifaceted American jazz pianist and composer Emmet Cohen is in the vanguard of his generation’s advancement of music and the related arts. A recognized prodigy, Cohen began Suzuki method piano instruction at age three, and his playing quickly became a mature melding of musicality, technique, and concept. Downbeat Magazine observed that his “nimble touch, measured stride and warm harmonic vocabulary indicate he’s above any convoluted technical showmanship.” Cohen notes that performing jazz is “about communicating the deepest levels of humanity and individuality; it’s essentially about connections,” both among musicians and with audiences. He is the winner of the 2019 American Pianists Awards and the Cole Porter Fellow of the American Pianists Association.
