Esperanza Spalding presented by the Mary Bloor Loser ’42 Concert Series

Four-time Grammy Award winner Esperanza Spalding has, in the past decade of her illustrious career (which also involves having performed at the Oscars, the Grammys, the Nobel Prize ceremony, and several times at the White House), continually and brilliantly married genres, pushed boundaries, and created groundbreaking work. Spalding is, as a composer, bassist and vocalist, expansive, iterative, shape-shifting, open and progressively innovative. A voracious and magnetic performer, she is attentively studious towards what the process of playing live—whether sharing a stage with her own revolving ensembles, Herbie Hancock, Stevie Wonder, Janelle Monae or Prince—presents to the structure of a song. That channeled energy runs through her recorded catalog of seven collaborative and five solo albums. Tickets are required but are free of charge (limit 2 tickets per person).
