Grooves, avant guard, pop, classical, funk, blues — it’s all good music and Nicole Mitchell’s ensemble will explore the whole terrain to bring something familiar and something new with her exciting new project “A Certain Something.” 

Since 2010, Nicole Mitchell has been named “Top Jazz Flutist” each year by the Jazz Journalists Association and Downbeat Magazine. As a former president of Chicago’s Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians, her music celebrates contemporary African American culture as she builds alternative worlds that bridge the familiar with the unknown. Mitchell performs regularly throughout Europe, the U.S. and Canada as a composer, bandleader and improviser. As an artist who embraces the “and” rather than the “or”, her music is imbued with the feeling of jazz, grooves, classical, funk, and experimentalism in ways that holistically touch the heart, mind, body and soul. She has performed with great artists including Ballaké Sissoko, Rufus Reid, Vijay Iyer, Anthony Braxton, Hamid Drake, Terri Lyne Carrington, Brandee Younger, Tomeka Reid, Myra Melford, Joshua Abrams, Craig Taborn, Jen Shyu and others. Mitchell, a Guggenheim fellow, is a professor of Music where she teaches composition, improvisation and sound studies at the University of Virginia.
