Double-bassist Kebra-Seyoun Charles is a two-time winner of the Boston Philharmonic Youth Orchestra’s concerto competition, he is the winner of NAACP’s ACT-SO concerto competition, and he has been featured by Performance Today, YoungArts, and From the Top. Originally from Miami, he received his Bachelor of Music degree from the New England Conservatory of Music, and is currently pursuing his Master of Music degree at the Juilliard School. He is also a recipient of the prestigious Jerome L. Greene Fellowship. As the son of an African drummer and dancer, Charles was exposed to music at a very early age. Early exposure to jazz, gospel, and traditional African music led him to express interest in other forms of music. Exhibiting his versatility, Charles has had the opportunity to play alongside esteemed improviser and composer Tyshawn Sorey. He also played in the Slugs’ Saloon installation at the Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston, created by famed jazz musician and composer Jason Moran.
This performance is presented by The National Arts Club, in partnership with the Sphinx Organization, as part of a series of classical concerts featuring outstanding young Black and Latino musicians.Buy tickets/get more info now
