NEA Jazz Master Maria Schneider returns to NJPAC with her genre-defying orchestra. Widely acclaimed for her sophisticated large-ensemble recordings, Schneider is a gifted arranger and composer whose highly original work often blurs the lines between post-bop, classical and the avant-garde. Her GRAMMY® winning albums include 2005’s Concert in the Garden, 2008’s Sky Blue, and 2015’s The Thompson Fields. Schneider’s dedicated passion for artist’s rights informed her GRAMMY® winning album Data Lords, which was also a finalist for the 2021 Pulitzer Prize.

Produced by NJPAC and Seth Abramson, Rabbit Moon Productions, Inc.
