UNR's Program In Jazz and Improvisational Music presents a concert featuring one of the most renowned creative musicians in the world today, trumpeter Dave Douglas. His unique contributions to improvised music have garnered distinguished recognition, including a Guggenheim Fellowship, an Aaron Copland award, and two GRAMMY® nominations. While his career spans more than 40 recordings as a leader featuring groups ranging in scope from duo to big band, in this setting he is joined by The Westerlies, a New York-based brass quartet that includes Riley Mulherkar and Zubin Hensler on trumpet, and Andy Clausen and Willem de Koch on trombone.

Navigating a wide range of musical territory with the precision of a string quartet, the audacity of a rock band, and the charm of a family folk ensemble, The Westerlies re-imagine the chamber music experience through boldly personal performance, recording, collaboration, education, and outreach. Since their inception in 2011, they have cultivated a new brass quartet repertoire featuring over 50 original compositions as well as adaptations of Ives, Ellington, Bartok, Ligeti, Stephen Foster and numerous traditionals. Their music exudes the warmth of their longstanding friendships, and reflects the broad interests of its members.

The concert will also feature UNR jazz faculty and students in collaboration with Mr. Douglas and The Westerlies.

Please join us for this unique, one-of-a-kind event! All proceeds from the concert will help fund future efforts (recording, travel, scholarships, etc.) by the Program In Jazz & Improvisational Music.
