Combining cinematic sweep, transportive emotion, and rich melodic grandeur, Australian-born trumpeter/composer Nadje Noordhuis possesses one of the most unforgettably lyrical voices in modern music. Her deeply-felt, clarion tone and evocative compositional gift meld classical rigor, jazz expression, and world music accents into a sound that is distinctively her own.
Noordhuis performs regularly with several big bands, including the Maria Schneider Orchestra, Darcy James Argue’s Secret Society, the Diva Jazz Orchestra, and Kyle Saulnier’s Awakening Orchestra. She also performs with Rudy Royston 303, and the Anat Cohen Tentet. She has recently recorded for Sting, and for the Hamilton musical breakout star, Leslie Odom Jr.
