Since its inception, the JazzMN Orchestra has presented more than 80 concerts in its main series with dozens of additional performances at jazz and art festivals around the Twin Cities. The music performed by the JazzMN Orchestra ranges from the very beginnings of jazz through contemporary and commissioned works by today’s composers. Now in its 25th season, the JazzMN Orchestra has featured international jazz artists such as Randy Brecker, Kurt Elling, Mike Stern, Arturo Sandoval, Gordon Goodwin, Phil Woods, Nicholas Payton, Paquito D’Rivera and many more. 

A leading vocalist in contemporary jazz, Diane Schuur is as eclectic as she is brilliant. Nicknamed “Deedles” as a child (her mother’s endearment), Tacoma-born Schuur grew up steeped in traditional American jazz, courtesy of her parents’ formidable record collection with ample LPs by Duke Ellington and Dinah Washington.

Schuur’s much-laureled career includes two Grammy Awards, each for Best Jazz Vocal Performance, on Timeless (1986) and Diane Schuur and The Count Basie Orchestra (1987). Schuur scored three additional Grammy nominations for subsequent albums, as well as for the individual track “The Christmas Song.” Schuur’s music has explored almost every locale on the American musical landscape, and her attendant studio collaborations, showcasing her pitch-perfect execution and three-and-a-half-octave vocal range, are a who’s who of American originators in a plethora of styles.
