Named as a Millennial “Shaking Up the
Jazz World” by Vanity Fair, Canadian singer, trumpeter, and songwriter
Bria Skonberg joins Mason’s own Metropolitan Jazz Orchestra in a swinging
evening of fresh beats and brassy standards. Musical Director and alto sax
virtuoso Jim Carroll leads this distinguished ensemble comprising some of the
metro area’s finest jazz musicians in a concert featuring the versatile
Skonberg. Her soulful, sultry voice and extensive trumpet dexterity fuses
modern pop with jazz, creating unique allure. In 2016, she released a debut LP
of original compositions titled BRIA showcasing her broad range from the bluesy
instrumental “Down the Deep” to the Brazilian-flavored “How Can It Be.” The
Wall Street Journal
called Skonberg one of the “most versatile and imposing
musicians of her generation,” and she was recognized in 2016 as one of
DownBeat magazine’s “25 for the Future.”
