World-renowned composer, four-time Grammy Award-winning artist and NEA Jazz Master Maria Schneider leads the SRJO in a concert of her celebrated works. Schneider’s genre-bending style combines ethereal, layered sounds with full-throated density and unexpected rhythms, and she will lift the performance of the SRJO to new heights with her expressive conducting style. She has led her own jazz orchestra in New York since 1992, producing seven albums and appearing on five continents and in 80 countries. With commissions from the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra and Australian Chamber Orchestra, plus film credits to her name, she is acclaimed in all genres—but her love is big band jazz, and this concert features beautiful and exciting pieces from her many top-selling jazz albums, such as “Hang Gliding,” “Dança Ilusória,” “Walking By Flashlight,” and “Coming About.”

Presented in partnership with Earshot Jazz, part of the 2018 Earshot Jazz Festival
