Jazzfest White Plains presents the Emmet Cohen Trio (Two Shows: 7:30pm and 9pm)
September 10 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm$25
Recognized as a prodigy who began playing at age three, multifaceted American jazz pianist and composer Emmet Cohen is in the vanguard of his generation’s advancement of jazz. Cohen is the winner of the 2019 American Pianists Awards and the Cole Porter Fellow of the American Pianists Association. In addition to leading the Emmet Cohen Trio, Cohen has appeared regularly with Ron Carter, Benny Golson, Jimmy Cobb, George Coleman, Jimmy Heath and Billy Hart, among others. During the 2020 lockdown, Cohen developed “Live From Emmet’s Place,” a series of weekly performances by his trio and special guests who livestreamed from his New York apartment, recalling the Harlem rent parties of yesteryear. These concerts have received millions of internet views worldwide. This performance will take place indoors in accordance with New York State and local health department guidelines.
Tickets for either the 7:30 or 9pm performances are $25, and tickets for both are $40.
