On Sunday, November 17, the first Yardbird Suite Jazz Orchestra performance of the season will be directed by local composer/pianist Stephanie Urquhart.
Inspired by Charles Mingus, Maria Schneider and Darcy James Argue, Stephanie’s music works on the boundaries between structurally determined and more freely improvised music in a large group setting.
Known for her dynamic, playful, and emotive playing, Stephanie Urquhart is an Edmonton-based jazz pianist and composer quickly gaining international recognition. Stephanie has been featured at the Earshot Jazz Festival and was selected to present her music at the 2019 International Jazz Composers’ Symposium (IJCS) at the University of Northern Colorado, as well as the 2017 IJCS at the University of South Florida. Her music was performed by the Seattle Women’s Jazz Orchestra in Seattle, Washington in 2017 as part of the 5th Annual Jazz Composition Contest for Women Composers.
