Saxophonist Steve Wilson

Saxophonist Steve Wilson


Steve Wilson is one of the great alto saxophonists on the scene todayand truly one of the premiere soprano saxophone performers as well. He is the lead alto saxist in the Maria Schneider Jazz Orchestra and toured internationally for years with the great Chick Corea Origins group. He has collaborated with such celebrated musicians as Dave Holland, Cyrus Chestnut, Nicholas Payton, Orrin Evans, and Lewis Nash, and has long been involved at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC through Dr. Billy Taylor. Wilson’s career was closely intertwined with former WP jazz directors Mulgrew Miller and James Williams, and we are proud that he was a member of our adjunct faculty for a number of years. He is on the faculty at City College, CUNY and at the prestigious Ravinia Festival.

Each Jazz Room concert is preceded by Sittin’ In Meet-the-Artist session in Shea 101 Recital Hall one hour prior to performances. Sittin’ In is free to all ticket holders. This gives audience members the rare opportunity to meet and interact with the artist of the day in an intimate setting.
