The Sean Mason Quintet at PS21, Jazz at Lincoln Center Emerging Artist
Friday, June 10, 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm$15
Free for students and youth! PS21 is excited to welcome pianist/composer Sean Mason and his quintet to Pathways 2022. Originally from Charlotte, North Carolina, Sean has lived in New York City since 2017, where he is a Jazz at Lincoln Center Emerging Artist, leading his own ensemble and a much sought-after sideman. He has been featured in Ellington Through the Ages with Wynton Marsalis and in Danny Barker: A New Orleans Life in Jazz, alongside a who’s who of New Orleans’ musical elite. At PS21, Sean will be joined by the stellar members of his quintet, Felix Moseholm, Domo Branch, Tony Glausi, and Abdias Armenteros in a performance of his original music, selected from three works: “The Southern Suite,” “The Migration Suite,” and, his most recent—and timely—“The Recovery Suite.”
Like many Pathways programs, the quintet’s performance at PS21 is free for students, and priced with accessibility and affordability in mind for all. In addition to the performance, the quintet will lead workshops for local student jazz ensembles, offering feedback and insight, and showcasing helpful techniques in improvisation, soloing, ensemble playing, and more.
