Emmet Cohen Trio @ Walton Arts Center

December 5 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm


As part of the Starlight Jazz Series, Walton Arts Center is proud to present this incredible jazz trio in collaboration with NWA Jazz Society on Saturday, December 5th at 7:30pm. 

Still in his 20s and recognized as a prodigy of his craft, Emmet Cohen is an American pianist and composer whose talents are a beacon for the future of jazz. Performing live with his trio, Cohen faithfully pays homage to the old piano masters – with the spirits of Jelly Roll Morton and Fats Waller no doubt admiring Cohen’s left hand, while his right hand tosses off shimmering passages that conjure apparitions of Duke Ellington, Earl Hines and Art Tatum.

Social distancing protocols are being met by moving the Starlight Jazz Series (with a 200 max crowd) into the 1200 seat Baum Walker Hall. For more information on how Walton Arts Center is keeping its patrons safe, click HERE.
