CJO's "Big Band Evolution" ft. Maria Schneider at Southern Theater
Grammy Award-winning conductor/arranger/composer Maria Schneider brings her radiant charisma to the stage to lead the CJO in an unforgettable evening of art and jazz.
The music of Maria Schneider has been hailed by critics as "evocative, majestic, magical, and beyond categorization." Schneider's music blurs the lines between genres placing her on a very short list of those who have received Grammy Awards in both "jazz" and "classical" categories. Unique funding of her projects has become a hallmark for Schneider through the trend-setting company, ArtistShare, for which she earned three Grammy Awards for her latest fan-funded recording with Dawn Upshaw (Winter Morning Walks).
Southern Theater, 21 E Main St
