Maria Schneider Orchestra: University Musical Society.

Blurring the lines between genres, composer-conductor Schneider’s work has ranged from commissions by Jazz at Lincoln Center and the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra to a collaboration with David Bowie. She has received 7 Grammy Awards, and her latest work, Data Lords (2020), was named Jazz Album of the Year by the Jazz Journalists Association. Her 18-member jazz orchestra produces lush, complex, and “masterfully played” music that invites the listener to “traverse fantastic orchestral paths,” according to Jazz Trail. 8 p.m., Hill Auditorium. Tickets $12–$55 in advance at & by phone, and (if available) at the door. 764–2538.
