About the event
Adrienne Nims is a flutist and saxophonist whose passionate energy is well acclaimed. Though her early formal training focused on classical music, she quickly developed a deep interest in jazz and world music. In addition to piano and flute, by age 13 she was also playing the saxophone and performing professionally in Big Bands and classical ensembles. Playing under guest conductors from around the world at New England Conservatory further fueled her appreciation and development in global music. Adrienne's dynamic voice on flutes and saxophones express not only a vast array of musical culture and style, but the magic and mystery of life. Adrienne's group Spirit Wind has performed at such well known venues as the Getty Museum of Los Angeles, California Center for the Arts, the world famous San Diego Zoo, and major jazz festivals and classical series. In her professional career, Adrienne has opened for such greats as Spyro Gyra, Kirk Whalum, Joe Cocker, Fourplay, Don Maclean, Boz Scaggs, Steppenwolf, and more. Adrienne is an accomplished studio musician with credits on over 50 CDs including her own, and television soundtracks as well. In addition to her work as a performing and recording artist, Adrienne is also an educator, teaching flute and saxophone, and masterclass presenter for institutes and foundations.
Adrienne finds time to stay involved in sharing music with children and adults of all ages through library and school music programs throughout the communities. Her musical creativity is drawn from every curve of the globe, springing from the immense and infinite music of nature, as well as from the individual and collective spirit and emotion of the talented musicians with whom she plays.
