The Marianne Trudel Quartet is performing at the MAC as they tour for the jazz festival season.

Quebec pianist Trudel will perform at the MAC on June 24 from 7 to 9 p.m. She will be playing music from her latest Juno-nominated album La vie commence ici – Life Begins Here.

Trudel said this will be the first time she’s touring the album — which was released almost two years ago — in Western Canada.

Trudel said she is very excited to be touring with the band.

“It’s an amazing band,” Trudel said. “The musicians are passionate and generous.”

The jazz quartet includes Ingrid Jensen (trumpet), Rémi-Jean Leblanc (bass) and Rich Irwin (drums).

Trudel has toured in Canada, the United States, France, Spain, Germany and Mexico.
