Faculty Artist Concert Series
Emmet Cohen with the UIndy Jazz Faculty
Presented by Katz, Sapper & Miller
Emmet Cohen was the winner of the 2019 American Pianists Awards and recipient of the Cole Porter Fellowship in Jazz. He continues as artist-in-residence at the University of Indianapolis for a second year. Downbeat has praised the “nimble touch, measured stride, and warm harmonic vocabulary” he employs to communicate with other musicians and audiences. Cohen has appeared at the Monterey, Newport, North Sea, and Edinburgh jazz festivals, and at legendary nightspots such as Birdland, the Blue Note, and Jazzhaus Montmartre. For his fall concert, Cohen will be featured as soloist and also in collaboration with UIndy jazz faculty Mark O’Connor, Brandon Meeks, and Kenny Phelps.
Open and free of charge to UIndy students, faculty, and staff only, due to COVID-19 restrictions. General public: Check back for forthcoming information on free, live streaming information.
