Eyes closed concentrating on playing trumpet hitting a Jazz music crescendo this talented young musician showed excited Montreal audience why her band won the prestigious 2015 TD Grand Prix de Jazz award.
Rachel Therrien’s Quintet really wowed masses of fans that year, who packed in front of the huge TD Stage on the north-western part of the Quartier-des-Spectacles, listening to their unique music during the annual Montreal International Jazz Festival.
Winning that TD award gave Rachel and company inspiration to win the awesome 2016 Stingray Jazz Rising Star Award created by Stingray Digital Group Inc., the world-leading provider of multi-platform digital music services to recognize excellence in emerging creative music talent.
Since then the Rachel Therrien Quintet has also produced several new albums including their most recent an Afro-Colombian inspired Jazz one called “Pensamiento” and more is on the way!
