Three-time Grammy Award-winner and revered jazz saxophonist Branford Marsalis has continued to exercise and expand his skills as an instrumentalist, a composer, bandleader and educator, crossing stylistic boundaries while maintaining an unwavering creative integrity. No stranger to classical music, Branford has performed works by Copland, Debussy, Glazunov, Ibert, Mahler, Milhaud, Rorem, Vaughan Williams and Villa-Lobos with leading orchestras in the United States and Europe, and served as Creative Director for the Cincinnati Symphony’s Ascent Series from 2012 to 2013.

The Grammy Award-winning Orpheus Chamber Orchestra is known for its collaborative leadership style in which the musicians, not a conductor, interpret the score. Accompanying the critical acclaim for Orpheus' live appearances are numerous distinctions and awards, including a 2001 Grammy Award for “Shadow Dances: Stravinsky Miniatures,” a 1998 Grammy nomination for its recording of W.A. Mozart piano concerti with Richard Goode, and the 1998 "Ensemble of the Year" award by Musical America, as well as performances on Herbie Hancock's Grammy-winning “Gershwin's World.”
