The Nadje Noorduis Quintet

Wednesday, March 15, 2017 at 7:00 pm

Glassbox Performance Space 55 West 13th Street, New York, NY 10011

Mannes School of Music and the Festival of New Trumpet Music present The Nadje Noorduis Quintet: Nadje Noordhuis (trumpet), Sara Caswell (violin), Gary Versace (piano/accordion), Matt Clohesy (bass), and Obed Calvaire (drums).

Combining cinematic sweep, transportive emotion, and rich melodic grandeur, Australian-born 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. Noordhuis was one of ten semi-finalists in the 2007 Thelonious Monk International Jazz Trumpet Competition and was selected as a Carnegie Hall Young Artist to undertake a weeklong residency with trumpet great Dave Douglas in 2010. Recent engagements include a yearly week-long run at New York's Village Vanguard with Rudy Royston's 303, performances with the Grammy-winning Maria Schneider Orchestra, performances at jazz festivals in Europe, Canada and Brazil with Grammy-nominated Darcy James Argue's Secret Society, and regular appearances with her group at the historic 55 Bar in Greenwich Village.
