E2C – Composers Dorothy Hindman and Charles Norman Mason with Pianist Jacob Mason
Celebrate the Opening of E2C’s 25th Performance Season
with Music That Endures
Special Guest Artist Jacob Mason burst onto the concert piano stage at the age of 13 after winning America’s triple crown of concerti prizes with Prokofiev’s Piano Concerto No. 1. At 14, he won the national New World Symphony Piano Concerto Competition. With his critically praised Carnegie Hall debut in 2016, Mason’s expanding repertoire and charismatic performances predict a stellar career as a soloist specializing in the most difficult classical and modern piano repertoire. Now 18, Mason will perform a virtuoso program of piano masterpieces from Brahms to Ravel to Gershwin and include works by his internationally awarded parents, Escape to Create Composers-in-Residence Dorothy Hindman and Charles Norman Mason.
Hindman’s compositions have been performed by world-renowned musicians at Carnegie Hall, the United Nations, The American Academy in Rome and leading concert venues throughout Europe. Charles Norman Mason’s numerous international awards include the Prix de Rome and Mexico’s Foro International de Musica Nueva. Hindman and Mason teach at the Frost School of Music, University of Miami. While E2C Composer-in-Residence, Hindman will complete her first piano concerto written for her eldest son, pianist Jacob Mason. Following the January 6th concert, Charles Norman and Jacob will depart for the New England Conservatory of Music where Jacob will resume advanced studies.
