“Their set played like an expertly crafted mixtape, moving from a knotty version of Thelonious Monk’s Brilliant Corners to a surprisingly dramatic version of the Beatles’ ‘Fool on the Hill.'”

The brainchild of pianist and composer Renee Rosnes, Artemis is an international ensemble of modern jazz masters, each hard-swinging member of the group a bandleader and composer in her own right. Named for the ancient Greek goddess of the hunt, the multinational and multigenerational group was founded in 2017 under the banner of International Women’s Day and soon afterward made a memorable splash at the 2018 Newport Jazz Festival. As a collective, Artemis draws on the musical personalities of each member, with performances typically including arrangements of songs by the Beatles, jazz classics by Thelonious Monk and Wayne Shorter, and new compositions written expressly for the ensemble. “One of Sunday’s clear highlights was a set by the super-group Artemis…[which] played like an expertly crafted mixtape” (Rolling Stone).
Program notes will be available approximately one week before the performance.
