Maria Schneider’s
 music has been hailed by critics as “evocative, majestic, magical, heart-stoppingly gorgeous, and beyond categorization.” She will be playing with the Edmonton Jazz Orchestra on January 31, 2018 at the new Triffo Theatre. This is her first visit to Edmonton.

Tickets start at $25 and can be purchased at yeglive.caMaria Schneider is presented by the Edmonton Jazz Festival Society and is brought in part by MacEwan University.

Maria Schneider and her orchestra have a distinguished recording career with twelve GRAMMY nominations and five GRAMMY awards. Unique funding of projects has become a hallmark for Schneider through the trend-setting company, ArtistShare.  Her album, Concert in the Garden (2004) became historic as the first recording to win a GRAMMY with Internet-only sales, even more significantly, it blazed the “crowd-funding” trail as ArtistShare’s first release. She’s been awarded many honors by the Jazz Journalists Association and DOWNBEAT and JAZZTIMES Critics and Readers Polls.  In 2012, her alma mater, the University of Minnesota, presented Schneider with an honorary doctorate, and in 2014, ASCAP awarded her their esteemed Concert Music Award.

Her 2014 collaboration with her orchestra and David Bowie resulted in his single, Sue (Or In A Season of Crime), and brought her a 2016 GRAMMY (Best Arrangement, Instruments and Vocals).  Schneider and her orchestra also received a 2016 GRAMMY for their latest work, The Thompson Fields (Best Large Jazz Ensemble Album).

“To call Schneider the most important woman in jazz is missing the point two ways. She is a major composer–period.” – TIME MAGAZINE
