Music Department Artist-in-Residence Donny McCaslin will cap off his week of residency with a performance at the Jazz Showcase.

Saxophonist Donny McCaslin will perform at the Jazz Showcase Thursday, March 7 as the culmination of his week-long residency as the Music Department Artist-in-Residence. McCaslin will play a medley of compositions and will perform with several of Columbia’s top student ensembles.

McCaslin is an American saxophonist who has recorded over a dozen albums as a bandleader, including his work on David Bowie’s final studio album, Blackstar. McCaslin is a two-time Grammy nominee. His most recent album, Blow, is described as “a daring fusion of vibrant electronica, and bombastic art-rock.”

The Music Department’s Artists-in-Residence program brings nationally and internationally recognized musicians to Columbia for week-long residencies every semester. The artists lead workshops, master classes, and rehearsals with student ensembles in preparation for recording sessions and public performances. A full list of Columbia Artist-in-Residence performances can be found here
