  • Maria Schneider in Residence: Midday Muse
    Maria Schneider in Residence: Midday Muse Full Details [X]
    12:30 PM - 2:00 PM
    Midday Muse<br /> Thursday, March 9, 12:30 P.M.<br /> Jewett Auditorium, Wellesley College<br /> Lecture-demonstration, discussion, Q&amp;A<br /> <br /> &ldquo;Maria Schneider is a national treasure.&rdquo; &nbsp;&ndash; National Public Radio<br /> &nbsp;<br /> Maria Schneider&rsquo;s music has been hailed by critics as evocative, majestic, magical, heart-stoppingly gorgeous, and beyond categorization. She is known for her personal way of writing for her 18-member instrumental collective, tailoring her compositions to highlight the uniquely creative voices of the group. Her music blurs the lines between genres, giving her a long and diverse list of commissioners, stretching from Jazz at Lincoln Center to The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra to David Bowie. She is among the very few musicians to have received Grammy Awards in multiple genres.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> Schneider is not only an award-winning composer and instrumentalist but an innovative business entrepreneur and music rights advocate. Her ArtistsShare Commission Project allows investors to step inside the world of musical composition, from the germ of an idea to a fully realized piece of music. A strong voice for music advocacy, her views on Spotify, Pandora, digital rights, and music piracy are frequently quoted in the media.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> <em>Generously supported in part by a Babson/Olin/Wellesley Presidential Innovation Grant; BabsonARTS; and the following Wellesley College sources: the Wellesley College Music Department, the Marjorie Copland Baum Memorial Fund, and the Florence Jeup Ford &rsquo;22, Mary M.
