Maria Schneider Orchestra at Ravinia Festival

Maria Schneider has been hailed by critics for music that’s “evocative, majestic, magical, heart-stoppingly gorgeous, and beyond categorization.”

She and her orchestra started collecting those plaudits in 1994 with Evanescence, on which Schneider began to develop her personal way of writing for her 18-member collective, tailoring her compositions to distinctly highlight the uniquely creative voices of the group.

Schneider’s music blurs the lines between genres, making her long list of artistic connections quite varied, including commissions from Jazz at Lincoln Center and the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra, as well as collaborating with David Bowie.

She is among a small few to have earned Grammy nods in multiple genres, winning seven among 14 nominations.

Schneider has also been awarded several honors by the Jazz Journalists Association, DownBeat, and JazzTimes, and in 2019 she was named an NEA Jazz Master.
