Music Of Shaun Martin at The Sammons Center For The Arts
Four-Time Grammy Award Winning Oak Cliff Native Shaun Martin Headlines Dallas Jazz Piano Society. He’s toured Europe and won Grammys with Kirk Franklin and with fellow band members in Snarky Puppy. All ticket proceeds from the event benefit the music education program Keys for Kids, an outreach of Dallas Jazz Piano Society (DJPS). Martin and DJPS promise an evening of unexpected musical stylings and entertainment that will go on to inspire and develop new music talent in Dallas.
“We couldn’t be more thrilled to feature a performer like Martin in our season this year, said Dan Haerle, Dallas Jazz Piano Society creative director. “From learning to play piano in Oak Cliff as a young boy and going on to collaborate with Chaka Khan, Kirk Franklin and Erykah Badu, he’s represented Dallas in the international jazz scene and will give an especially energetic performance to his home base and new fans with us at Sammons.”
While its concerts continue to pack Sammons, DJPS seeks to inspire more than concert attendees and musicians. Students with valid school IDs can attend all DJPS performances for free. Proceeds from the general admission fee for shows benefits Keys for Kids, an initiative started by DJPS to help deserving students in the Dallas area pay for piano lessons and instruments.
All regular season DJPS concerts are $20 for general admission and free for students with valid student IDs. Sammons Center for the Arts is located at 3630 Harry Hines Blvd. Dallas, Texas, 75219.
