The 31st Contemporary Music Festival (October 3–5) features jazz/classical composer, drummer and arranger John Hollenbeck, his group the Claudia Quintet and German conductor Jan Horstmann. Grammy Award nominee John Hollenbeck has created a passionate new musical language based on world rhythms, lyricism and spirituality. Hollenbeck has worked with many of the world’s leading jazz musicians and received numerous commissions and awards, including the prestigious Guggenheim Fellowship in 2007. Two of his records, A Blessing (2005) and Eternal Interlude (2009), received Grammy Nominations. In 1997, Hollenbeck formed the acclaimed Claudia Quintet, which has amazed audiences from Alabama to the Amazon.
