Artist in Residence
Ellington Carthan, jazz pianist & composer
Sponsored by Daniel and Sarah Gallagher ♫, Tina and Arthur Lazerow, and Bayo and Funke Oyewole
Just like his namesake, jazz pulses through Ellington Carthan’s veins. This up-and-coming jazz pianist, whose diverse career includes performing, teaching, producing, and composing, holds dual degrees in jazz studies and music technology. Born in California and raised in North Carolina, it’s perhaps Carthan’s bicoastal upbringing that make him such a versatile musician. Like his mentor, celebrated pianist Cyrus Chestnut, Carthan enjoys mixing genres and resists being typecast. Carthan has been honored to perform at prestigious venues such as The Kennedy Center, the Library of Congress, Smithsonian museums, and more.
