A 1990 graduate of New England Conservatory with honors and distinction, Sarah Jane Cion is one of the most talented young new American pianists to arrive in years.

Cion was a Boston Jazz Society Award recipient in 1988 and has received three consecutive National Endowment for the Arts study grants. She was a finalist in the 1997 John Lennon Song Writing contest. In 1999, Cion won the renowned Great American Jazz Piano Competition judged by luminaries like Kenny Barron, Benny Green, Horace Silver and Ellis Marsalis Jr. In 1999, she also participated in the prestigious Mary Lou Williams Women In Jazz Festival at the Kennedy Center.
