Maria Schneider Orchestra

Tags/Genres Music

Evocative. Majestic. Heart-stoppingly gorgeous. These are a few of the phrases used to describe Maria Schneider’s music. With her 18-member jazz collective, the renowned bandleader defies categorization. One of few artists to have earned Grammys in multiple categories, she is known for tailoring her compositions to highlight the unique talents of her orchestra’s members. For their first performance at Carolina Performing Arts, the Maria Schneider Orchestra headlines the 2020 Carolina Jazz Festival.

After the performance, join Maria Schneider in the lobby of UNC’s Memorial Hall for an artist signing. Artist merchandise will be available for purchase by cash only.

Tickets from $27
