The UMaine School of Performing Arts Division of Music presents the UMaine Jazz Ensemble with special guest artist Nadje Noordhuis, live at 7:30 pm, Thursday April 14, on the stage of Minsky Recital Hall.
The UMaine Jazz Ensemble, under the direction of UMaine School of Performing Arts lecturer Dan Barrett, is UMaine’s premiere auditioned big band, and performs often on the UMaine campus and other venues throughout the state.
Described as “one of the most compelling voices to emerge on her instrument in recent years” (Dan Bilawksy, All about Jazz), Australian-born New York based trumpeter/composer Nadje Noordhuis possesses one of the most unforgettably lyrical voices in modern music. Her deeply-felt, clarion tone and evocative compositional gift meld classical rigor, jazz expression, and world music accents into a sound that is distinctively her own.
Tickets are $10 and available for purchase from the Collins Center for the Arts.
