This summer, join us in the park for free jazz concerts, featuring Taulant Mehmeti.
Join us in the park for a free jazz concert featuring Taulant Mehmeti. As a youngster in war-torn Kosovo, Mehmeti amazed local audiences with his
songwriting talent and musicianship. Under the mentorship of renowned local jazz guitarist Armend Xhaferi, he developed into a leading jazz player in
Kosovo and Albania. Now an active performer on the New York scene, Mehmeti has played, as a leader and a sideman, in venues including Blue Note, B.B.Kings and Iridium just to name a few.
The School of Jazz at The New School, founded in 1986, is one of the most influential institutions of its kind. The quality and uniqueness of the school lie in its artist-as-mentor approach to learning, its progressive curriculum, small ensemble-based performance, a stellar faculty composed of artist-practitioners, and our access to unique musical opportunities throughout New York City.
Rain or shine!
