Maria Schneider Orchestra

When: Tue., April 19, 7 p.m. 2016

Maria Schneider’s musical style doesn’t fit neatly into any one box. As one of just a handful of composers to snatch up Grammy Awards in both jazz and classical categories — including one this year for her collaboration with the late David Bowie — Schneider straddles genres with ease. The Minnesota-born songsmith’s versatility shines in the pieces she pens for her big-band orchestra, which the Guardian hails for its “slow-burn buildups, sensitive improvising, and richly layered brass and reeds.” Schneider and company hit all the right notes in two area concerts, charming jazz buffs and classical connoisseurs alike.

Price: $17-50.
