Tickets and information

For more than two decades, beginning with her orchestra’s debut album Evanescence (1994), composer/conductor Maria Schneider has developed a deeply personal way of writing for her seventeen–member collective; like Duke Ellington, she has tailored her compositions to highlight the individually expressive voices of her soloists. In July 2018, Maria Schneider was awarded the highest honor in jazz, as a recipient of the 2019 Jazz Masters Fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts. “The enduring popularity of Schneider’s jazz orchestra is a combination of many factors—including the ingenuity of her compositions and arrangements, and the superlative musicianship of her ensemble—but the openhearted lyricism that imbues all of her work may be the most winning component.” (The New Yorker)
