Jordan Kitt’s Music was pleased to provide the 7′ Yamaha grand piano for a special performance by jazz great Emmet Cohen at Color Burst Park in Columbia.
Emmet Cohen is one of his generation’s pivotal figures in music and the related arts. Leader of the Emmet Cohen Trio and creator of the Masters Legacy Series, he is an internationally acclaimed jazz artist, a dedicated educator, the winner of the 2019 American Pianists Awards, and a finalist in the Thelonious Monk International Piano Competition. Cohen headlines regularly at Jazz at Lincoln Center, the Village Vanguard, and Birdland, and has appeared at the Newport, Monterey, and North Sea jazz festivals. He was also voted the world’s 3rd best living jazz pianist in the DownBeat reader’s poll this past December. Find more about Emmet’s current tour here.
The event is part of Amped in the Park: A cooperative concert series between the Merriweather Arts & Cultural Center & Columbia Festival of the Arts designed to bring free live music to the surrounding area around the Pavilion and the Merriweather District.
Jordan Kitt’s Music has been a longtime partner of both organizations in bringing live music to residents of Howard County, and in furthering music education and exposure in the area.
