BRATTLEBORO- The Vermont Jazz Center will present the Jensen Sisters featuring Ben Monder in concert on Saturday, February 15, at 8 pm.

New York-based Ingrid Jensen is a trumpeter known for her original work as a composer, bandleader and distinguished member of the Maria Schneider Orchestra. She has been hailed by jazz great Marian McPartland for her ability to play “with all the fire and brilliance of a virtuoso.” Montreal-based Christine Jensen has been described as “one of Canada’s most compelling composers.” She is a saxophonist known for her multifaceted compositions and orchestrations and has won Juno and Opus Awards in recognition of her work. They will be joined by guitarist Monder, one of the most versatile and interesting colorists on his instrument. The quintet will be rounded out by acoustic bassist Matt Clohesy and Jon Wikan on drums.

This concert is made possible thanks to generous financial support from Wakefield Global Inc. and Ellis Music, as well as ongoing support of the Vermont Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts, The Hampton Inn of Brattleboro, and VPR and WFCR.

Tickets are $20 for general admission, and $15 for students with I.D. (contact VJC about educational discounts).

Tickets are available at In the Moment Record Store in Brattleboro, online at www.vtjazz.org or they can be reserved by calling (802) 254-9088, ext. 1.
