André Wickenheiser's sound is all his own. Whether it's the sound of his trumpet, or his compositional style, it is immediately recognizable. Calgary based trumpeter André Wickenheiser began his musical studies at Mount Royal University where he completed an Artist Diploma in jazz performance. From there, he went on to finish both a Bachelor Degree, and Masters Degree in jazz performance at McGill University in Montreal.

André has performed with artists and groups including Laila Biali, The Canadian National Jazz Orchestra, Decidedly Jazz Danceworks, The Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra, and Jens Lindemann.

This performance will feature all new, original compositions by André Wickenheiser. It will showcase some of his favorite styles of music ranging from hip-hop to swing, with acoustic and electric sounds. André will be backed up by an extremely talented group of musicians including Sanah Kadoura on drums, Nate Waters on tenor saxophone, Joanna Borromeo on keys, and Daniel Nava on the bass.

This will be a special evening of great jazz with interview vignettes to meet the person behind the Trumpet.
