Overview

Overview Jazz: Melissa Aldana

JUST ADDED: Come early for a 7pm moderated conversation between Melissa Aldana and Baltimore-based alto saxophonist, Sarah Hughes.

One of the most compelling and prodigious tenor saxophonists of her time, National Public Radio calls Melissa Aldana “a bold new talent.”  As a child in Chile, Aldana studied with her renowned saxophonist father Marcos Aldana. She left her home country of Chile in 2007 to pursue jazz at ever higher levels in the U.S.

A graduate of Berklee School of Music, she has apprenticed with greats, such as Greg Osby and George Coleman. In 2013 she became the first female instrumentalist and the first South American ever to win the Thelonious Monk Competition. She is also a recipient of the Martin E. Segal Award from Jazz at Lincoln Center and a double recipient of the Altazor Award, Chile’s highly prestigious national arts prize.

With: Melissa Aldana - tenor sax Sam Harris - piano Pablo Menares - bass Tommy Crane - drums

This engagement of Melissa Aldana is funded through the Mid Atlantic Tours program of Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation with support from the National Endowment for the Arts.
