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 as 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.”


About the Artist

As a thirteen-year-old musical prodigy in Charlotte, Sean Mason taught himself to play piano by ear. At that time, his roots were in gospel, hip-hop, and R&B, but he changed direction when he discovered jazz. After several years at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and the Juilliard School, Sean established himself in the New York City jazz scene, performing and touring with Branford Marsalis, Wynton Marsalis, and Herlin Riley, among many other jazz legends, while also collaborating with R&B and soul artists such as Masego, Roy Blair, and Kenneth Whalum. Noted for his fluent mastery of multiple musical  styles, spanning genres and generations, his most intimate expressions  are his own music, which he performs with his ensembles the Sean Mason Trio and Quintet . Sean has also worked in film and theater, as the pianist for “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom” (Netflix) and “Tulsa Burning: The 1921 Race Massacre” (The History Channel) in “Hadestown” and “Phantom of the Opera” on Broadway, and as composer, orchestrator, and music director for numerous off-Broadway.

About PS21

A vibrant center for contemporary performance in the Hudson Valley, PS21 “presents work that challenges and invites” (The New York Times): adventurous productions by leading and emerging American and international artists in music, dance, and theater, and visionaries creating entirely new genres. On our open-air Pavilion Theater stage, across our expansive, unspoiled grounds, and in the diverse surrounding communities, PS21 cultivates and presents productions that transcend aesthetic boundaries and revitalize existing artistic languages and grammars. Throughout the year, we host developmental residencies for dancers, musicians, actors, and creators of original, even unclassifiable new work. Rooted in community collaboration, PS21’s programming engages creatively with critical global and social issues. It is a mecca for innovative and original artistic voices, a destination for performance that can be experienced nowhere else in the region. PS21’s Pavilion Theater is a green-energy marvel surrounded by 100 acres of unspoiled meadows, trails, and woodlands that are a haven to wildlife and visitors across the region.  Integrated into our unspoiled campus, the theater embodies our commitments to the public: open, inviting, and optimized for their enjoyment and encouraging citizen expression and participation.
