“Rachel is a young trumpet player with a luxurious opus in her compositions and her multicultural rhythms. A musical, fluid and mature phrasing” – Lionel Loueke

The Rachel Therrien Quartet is a fantastic emerging Jazz ensemble. Rachel is a graduate of Universite de Montreal where she completed a degree in Jazz interpretation under the direction of Trumpet professor Ron Di Lario. IN 2008, she spent 9 months in Cuba where she studied with Cuban greats including Elidio Chappotin, Yasek Manzano and Gorge Rubio. Her recording “On Track” (2011) features modern jazz compositions layered on top of a Cuban conga percussion attack.

Rachel has performed with such renowned artists are Vic Vogel, Remi Bolduc, Oliver Jones, Carole Welsman, Michel legrand, and Sophie Desmarais. There is a huge jazz scene in the province of Quebec and this is our opportunity to hear one of the rising stars in jazz from our neighbouring province.
