Noted jazz singer **Ellen Cogen** and guitarist **John Mason** perform favorites of Tuck and Patti, Joe and Ella, and... John and Ellen! Donations will be split 50/50 between the musician and the social justice work of the Unitarian Society, for now focused primarily on our immigration and sanctuary work. Musical and real-life partners John Mason and Ellen Cogen have been performing together since 2009, when John invited Ellen to sit in with him on a gig. They collaborate in a variety of styles, from classical to jazz and rock, and also enjoy improvisational explorations. They recorded an album of originals and their arrangements of a diverse selection of covers, called “Chord of Longing”. Both are also professors of music, and met as colleagues at Holyoke Community College. ** **
