Matthew Whitaker performing at Norton Center
February 12 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
From his own original compositions to jazz standards and songs by Stevie Wonder and Earth, Wind, and Fire, to witness the virtuosity of Matthew Whitaker improvising at the key – board is to be in the presence of a once-in-a-generation musical talent.
Matthew began teaching himself how to play the Hammond B3 organ at age nine and four years later, he became the youngest artist to be endorsed by Hammond in its 80 plus year history. One of Matthew’s many television appearances includes a feature on CBS 60 Minutes. He studied classical piano and drums at The Filomen M. D’Agostino Greenberg Music School of the Lighthouse Guild in New York City, the only community music school for the blind and visually impaired in the United States, and is now a student at Juilliard.
