The Berklee Quintet featuring Melissa Aldana

Chilean saxophonist and composer Melissa Aldana is featured in the latest Berklee’s Masters on the Road series, in which master musicians return to teach and lead touring ensembles. This group features students Milena Casado (trumpet), Marco Birro (piano), Charlie Lincoln (bass), Jonathan Blanchette (drums) and Ilia Blazh (drums). The Berklee students, selected by audition, have worked on Aldana’s repertoire throughout the semester in a course taught by faculty member Neal Smith.
