- Maria Schneider Orchestra
- "Soul on Soul": A Tribute to Mary Lou Williams
About this Performance
Maria Schneider is a multiple Grammy® winner and the 2019 recipient of the prestigious NEA Jazz Masters Fellowship. Under her baton, the Maria Schneider Orchestra has brought big-band composition into the 21st century, developing the art form into an imaginative and beautifully fluid medium.
Mary Lou Williams was so dedicated to evolution that Duke Ellington once called her “perpetually contemporary.” Derrick Miller and Allison Hodge pay tribute to the pianist, composer, and arranger with their program “Soul on Soul,” which revisits the remarkably forward-thinking music Williams made in the 1960s and 1970s, combining jazz with sacred music and more.See other concerts in this series
