Lorna MacLachlan jazz trio

Lorna MacLachlan has been writing, arranging, performing and teaching in and around Calgary for over 30 years. After completing a graduate degree in Composition and theory she embarked on a career as a composer providing award winning original music for Theatre, Dance and National media companies (CBC, Access Network) and a variety of commercial and artistic enterprises across the spectrum of music genres. She has recorded five full length albums of original music and has had support from FACTOR, the Alberta Foundation for the performing arts as well as the Canada Council. She continues to write and perform for various groups with much of her focus going toward writing for her quintet. The Fall of 2018 will bring a new CD of original music.

As well, Lorna has always been passionate about music education and believes strongly in helping to develop the talents of the next generation. She has taught privately as well as for the public and private school boards and has been recognized nationally for her dedication to excellence in music education as a director of bands, jazz bands, choirs and jazz choirs. Many of her students have continued on to careers in music as performers and educators with degrees from some of the most prestigious schools in North America.

Today’s trio includes Jeremy Coates on bass, Andre Wickenheiser on trumpet and Lorna on piano and vocals. They will be playing music from Lorna’s last 2 CDs and new music that will be included on “Child’s Play”, Lorna’s new CD due out in the Fall of this year.


This concert is the first in a series of five Distinctive Performers Concerts during 2018 generously sponsored by:
