Renee Rosnes Quartet

Miller Theatre at Columbia University

This event has ended.

Pianist Renee Rosnes returns to Miller to headline a show that will include several original works for quartet. Stints with such jazz greats as Joe Henderson, Wayne Shorter, Ron Carter, and Bobby Hutcherson helped propel Rosnes’ career and develop her strong, unique voice. The winner of four Juno Awards (the Canadian Grammy), she has an extensive discography — including several collaborations with members of her quartet, all outstanding musicians in their own right. The group possesses an ability to create powerful music filled with melodic sensitivity and rhythmic energy.
