Summer Jazz Series: Emily Mazzella Quartet

August 18, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

$32

Emily Mazzella is a 21-year-old, up-and-coming jazz singer on the scene. Her story with jazz is one that grows deeper in passion every day.
She began music at a very young age; participating in various shows, musicals, and choirs—her first profound musical performance being through an honor choir which was showcased in the renown Carnegie Hall.

Coming from R & B, Pop, and all various roots: Emily began to study voice with Jazz Pianist, Composer, and Vocal Coach Lonnie Leibowitz, around the later months of her junior year of high school, leading to her first professional gig as the featured singer, with Lonnie’s trio. Getting deeper into jazz, opening her heart space, she became aware to all its cosmic properties. She continued to dive deep into the artistry throughout high school. Committing to “note to note feeling” (absorbed through the Masters), whether a melody or scat, Emily always delivers a “pure soul expression, with intensity, as she communicates to her audience”- Lonnie Leibowitz.

She has shared her unique message performing at various gigs, most notably in her recent performance with the Birdland Big Band at Birdland Jazz Club in Manhattan, and other NYC clubs. She has also shared the stage alongside Josh Groban during his Harmony Tour Performance at the Jones Beach Theater. Emily began studying at Suny Purchase College, in the Jazz Studies program in Fall of 2020. There she studies under the mentorship of Alexis Cole, Gary Smulyan, and others. She is currently a holder of the Manitou Jazz Studies Scholarship, a scholarship awarded to recognize students for their poignant, expansive, development of their art.
