Emmet Cohen is the winner of the 2019 American Pianists Awards and recipient of the Cole Porter Fellowship in Jazz. He has been named artist-in-residence at the University of Indianapolis for two years. Downbeathas 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. The first half of the evening will feature Cohen as soloist, with the second half devoted to collaborations with UIndy jazz faculty Mark O’Connor, Brandon Meeks, and Kenny Phelps.
