Oscar Perez

Pianist Oscar Perez, a New York City native, has shared the stage with jazz legends Bunky Green, George Russell, Curtis Fuller, and George Garzone. He received his formal education at New England Conservatory and Aaron Copland School of Music under the guidance of Danilo Perez and Sir Roland Hanna, respectively.

Since moving back to New York, he has spent recent years traveling and playing in the musical groups of trombonist Wycliffe Gordon, saxophonist Virginia Mayhew, vocalist Cathy Elliott and vibraphonist Christian Tamburr with whom he has a new recording.

In addition to employment as a jazz pianist, he toured with vocalist Phoebe Snow performing in venues such as The Theatre at Madison Square Garden and Webster Hall.

Recently, he has been appointed music director for St Edward’s Church in Harlem, N.Y. as well as accompanist for the Nightingale/Bamford Gospel Choir.
