Tickets for Artemis ($55/$40/$25) are available at scmcgr.org or by calling 616-459-2224.  St. Cecilia Music Center is located at 24 Ransom Ave NE, Grand Rapids, MI 49503.

St. Cecilia Music Center (SCMC) brings Artemis, the all-female six-person jazz supergroup to Grand Rapids on February 16, 2023 to continue this season’s exciting Jazz Series.  Artemis is comprised of pianist and musical director Renee Rosnes, Ingrid Jensen – trumpet, Alexa Tarantino – alto saxophone and flute, Nicole Glover – tenor saxophone, Noriko Ueda – bass and Allison Miller – drums. 

The brainchild of pianist and composer Renee Rosnes, Artemis is a powerful ensemble of modern jazz masters. The collective released their debut recording in 2020 and will deliver their next album in May 2023. Each member of Artemis is a bandleader and composer, and the repertoire draws on each of their distinctive personalities, from original music to imaginative arrangements of eclectic material. Artemis performs with joy, power, passion, and high-wire intensity.

Artemis will release their second album this Spring 2023. Artemis Musical Director Renee Rosnes says, “Artemis discovered a thrilling collective vision early in its lifespan. We are six leaders, each with our own vision and personal point of view, but we play with a unified conception.”

 

Executive & Artistic Director of SCMC Cathy Holbrook says, “We are looking forward to one of the most exciting concerts of this season featuring Artemis, six dynamic jazz artists, all women from around the world performing together. Artemis has been featured on the cover of DownBeat, in Vanity Fair, on NPR’s Jazz Night in America, and has performed on some of the country’s most iconic stages from Carnegie Hall to the Newport Jazz Festival. It will be an incredible evening!”

Tickets for Artemis ($55/$40/$25) are available at scmcgr.org or by calling 616-459-2224.  St. Cecilia Music Center is located at 24 Ransom Ave NE, Grand Rapids, MI 49503.

 

SCMC’s final Jazz Series concert for the 2022-2023 season will take place on March 9, 2023:

 

Emmet Cohen  will be live and in-person at SCMC to the delight of the fan base he’s developed his weekly streaming concerts from his Harlem apartment called “Live From Emmet’s Place”. 

“Thirty years old and one of the finest piano players to emerge in decades, (Emmet Cohen) the Miami-born and Montclair, New Jersey-raised musician is not just the poster man for contemporary jazz, breathing 2020s finesse onto early twentieth century swing, he is a supremely gifted and impassioned artist of the highest order.”  - Zachary Weg, All About Jazz

The brainchild of pianist and composer Renee Rosnes, Artemis is a powerful ensemble of modern jazz masters. Named for the Greek goddess of the hunt, the multinational, multigenerational group was founded in 2017 under the banner of International Women's Day. The band's performance at the 2018 Newport Jazz Festival was so compelling, Blue Note Records President Don Was signed them to the label. Tour dates followed across Europe and the US including festival performances in Saratoga, Monterey and Detroit, as well as at premier venues such as Carnegie Hall, SFJAZZ, Chicago Orchestra Hall, and the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. The collective released their debut recording in 2020 and will deliver their next album in May 2023. Each member of Artemis is a bandleader and composer, and the repertoire draws on each of their distinctive personalities, from original music to imaginative arrangements of eclectic material. Artemis performs with joy, power, passion, and high-wire intensity.

“A killer line-up of players.…they all converge on this extremely cosmopolitan, sleek, rhythm-forward, modern sound." (NPR)

 

"Collectively, the sheer force of the group's ability is staggering!" (DownBeat)
