Join us as trumpeter and jazz vocalist Bria Skonberg lights up the Mint Museum with her distinctive medley of classic jazz, world percussion, and old soul! An emerging powerhouse on the New York jazz scene, Bria Skonberg’s unique ability to reimagine standards through a modern prism has her “poised to be one of the most versatile and imposing musicians of her generation” (The Wall Street Journal). Recognized as one of “25 for the Future” by DownBeat magazine, Skonberg is newly signed to Sony Music Masterworks’ OKeh Records, and released her debut LP, simply titled BRIA, in September 2016.
To date, Bria has performed at some 100 festivals worldwide. She is the co-founder of the New York Hot Jazz Camp and New York Hot Jazz Festival. Further accolades include Best Vocal and Best Trumpet awards from Hot House Jazz Magazine (2014-15), Outstanding Jazz Artist at the New York Bistro Awards (2014), a DownBeat Rising Star (2013-15), and a nominee for Jazz Journalists' Association Up and Coming Artist (2013).
