Cincinnati Contemporary Jazz Orchestra, Featuring Maria Schneider
April 28 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm
“Her latest album, some 10 years in the making, shows just what a supple and powerful instrument a jazz orchestra can be.”
Maria Schneider’s music has been hailed by critics as “evocative, majestic, magical, heart-stoppingly gorgeous, imaginative, revelatory, riveting, daring, and beyond categorization.” Blurring the lines between genres, she is among a small few to receive GRAMMYS in multiple genres, having received the award in jazz and classical, as well as for her work with David Bowie. Here, she joins forces with the Cincinnati Contemporary Jazz Orchestra, Cincinnati’s foremorst ensemble in the exploration of contemporary repertoire.
