Evan Mazunik Evan Mazunik

Evan Mazunik explores sound as a performer/composer with passion and imagination. Raised on the prairies of Iowa and rooted in Queens, Mazunik plays piano and accordion throughout the New York City area.

As a composer, his commissions have included works for jazz band, chorus, and various solo instruments, as well as interdisciplinary works for theater, dance, and film. Most recently, his instant composition was featured in the NY International Fringe Festival for the show Big Beat/Back Flow.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
