Montreal-based saxophonist and composer Christine Jensen has been described as, “an original voice on the international jazz scene… [and] one of Canada’s most compelling composers,” Jensen took home the Juno Award for Contemporary Jazz Album of the Year with her first band album, Treelines in 2011, along with Quebec’s Opus Award for jazz recording of the year. She has recently toured her music internationally in India, Peru, Argentina, Chile, Denmark, Mexico, Sweden, Turkey, and Haiti. She currently holds the position of conductor of the Orchestre National de Jazz de Montréal and is on faculty at the University of Sherbrooke and McGill University, where she teaches composition and small and large ensembles. The PSU Big Band will perform Jensen’s large ensemble music.
