Multifaceted American jazz pianist and composer Emmet Cohen is undoubtedly one of this generation’s pivotal figures in jazz. He is the winner of the 2019 American Pianists Awards, the Cole Porter Fellow of the American Pianists Association, and an Artist-in-Residence at the University of Indianapolis. He was a finalist in the 2011 Thelonious Monk International Piano Competition, and has performed at major international jazz festivals, at Lincoln Center’s Rose Hall, The Kennedy Center, and dozens of key jazz clubs around the world.
During the lockdown he created “Live From Emmet’s Place,” a massively successful weekly livestream that led to a 2022 appearance on Good Morning America.
A Suzuki piano student at age three, Cohen holds jazz piano degrees from the Manhattan School of Music and the University of Miami. He has performed, recorded, or collaborated with Ron Carter, Benny Golson, Jimmy Cobb, Kurt Elling, and countless others. He returns to the Ridgefield Playhouse stage to headline his first show, after serving as a sideman to the legendary Christian McBride on two previous occasions.
