InDIGenous Jazz Series: Paul Dietrich Jazz Ensemble

  • Paul Dietrich Slider Image

This 18-member ensemble of outstanding local musicians performs trumpeter Dietrich’s new GMJC-commissioned suite, “Forward” This suite is inspired by Mr. Dietrich’s experiences as a small-town Wisconsin native who has traveled and performed widely around the state. It is also informed by his study of the music of modern big band giants like Maria Schneider, Darcy James Argue, Christine Jensen, and Fred Sturm. In addition to Mr. Dietrich, band members include many of Greater Madison’s top jazz musicians, e.g., Rachel Heuer, Nick Bartell, Allen Cordingley, Luke Busch (saxophone), Darren Sterud, Jamie Kember, Christy Swartz, Brian Whitty (trombone), Jessica Jensen, David Cooper, Barry Burdeen, Jordan Foster (trumpets) Jason Kutz (piano), Matt Hollander (guitar), John Christensen (bass), Tim Cieplowski (drums) and Megan Moran (voice).

Dietrich holds a Bachelor's degree in trumpet and jazz studies from Lawrence University (2010) and a Master's degree in Jazz Studies from DePaul University (2012). He is the coordinator of the jazz program at Prairie Music & Arts, and directs the Madison East High School Jazz Orchestra.

More information about Paul Dietrich is available on his website.
