NEA Jazz Master Maria Schneider’s music has been hailed by critics as “evocative, majestic, magical, heart-stoppingly gorgeous, and beyond categorization.” The celebrated composer returns to Seattle after a thrilling performance during the 2018 Earshot Jazz Festival with the Seattle Repertory Jazz Orchestra. This time she brings along her New York City-based 18-member jazz collective. One of few artists to have earned Grammys in multiple categories, she is known for defying categorization and tailoring her compositions to highlight the unique talents of her orchestra’s members.
