Join SWOJO in celebrating the music of women in jazz. Come hear the world premier of the winning composition from SWOJO's first annual jazz ensemble composition contest for women composers, featuring Ingrid Jensen. The contest was created to encourage the composition of the highest possible quality jazz ensemble literature playable by high schools, honoring bands, college bands and professional bands alike.
Jensenís performances as a leader and as a featured soloist have taken her around the world and can be heard with the Grammy-award winning Mosaic Project and her own highly regarded groups. A Vancouver, BC, native, she was honored with a Canadian Juno Award for her CD "Vernal Fields."
