Maria Schneider’s music has been hailed by critics as “evocative, majestic, magical, heart-stoppingly gorgeous, and beyond categorization.” The multiple GRAMMY® award-winning composer and bandleader spends a packed week here this spring for a special residency project. On the agenda are explorations of the Library’s treasure trove of scores and memorabilia, plus workshops for students and conversations with curators. Schneider conducts her terrific orchestra—a crack 17-member collective made up of many of the finest jazz musicians performing today—and unveils her new Library of Congress commission, created through the support of the Reva and David Logan Foundation, in memory of David Logan.
