Ingrid Jensen Mini-Residency
The music department is excited to welcome Ingrid Jensen to campus to work with our jazz students, conduct clinics with our combos and big band, and perform a public Midday Muse and a full evening concert.
Born in Vancouver and raised in Nanaimo, B.C., Canada, Ingrid Jensen has been hailed as one of the most gifted trumpeters of her generation. After graduating from Berklee College of Music in 1989, she recorded three highly acclaimed CDs for the ENJA record label and quickly became one of the most in-demand trumpet players on the global jazz scene.
After a teaching stint in Europe in her early 20s—as the youngest professor in the history of the Bruckner Conservatory in Linz, Austria—Jensen settled in New York in the mid-1990s, where she joined the innovative jazz orchestras of Maria Schneider and Darcy James Argue. More recently, she has been performing with Grammy-winner Terri Lyne Carrington and her Mosaic Project. Jensen is a featured soloist on the Christine Jensen Jazz Orchestra’s Juno Award–winning album, Treelines (2011), and its successor, Habitat (2013). She has performed with a multigenerational cast of jazz legends ranging from Clark Terry to Esperanza Spalding and alongside British R&B artist Corrine Bailey Rae on Saturday Night Live, and she has recorded with Canadian pop icon Sarah McLachlan. Jensen also leads her own quintet, quartet, and organ trio. Her own bands have garnered glowing reviews and a loyal fan base around the world.
Jensen has taught trumpet at the University of Michigan and the Peabody Conservatory, performed and lectured as a guest artist with the Thelonious Monk Institute High School group featuring Herbie Hancock, and performed and taught at the Centrum Jazz Workshop, the Dave Brubeck Institute, the Banff Centre Workshop in Jazz and Creative Music, the Stanford Jazz Camp, and the Geri Allen Jazz Camp for young women. She is currently on the faculty at both Purchase College and the New School in New York.
Information about Jensen's performance on March 9.
