Satchmo Saturdays: Marquis Hill

  • The Promontory 5311 South Lake Park Avenue Chicago, IL, 60615 United States

Trumpeter and composer Marquis Hill is widely recognized as one of the preeminent voices of his generation on his instrument. Raised in the Chatham neighborhood on Chicago's South Side, Hill became a fixture on the Chicago scene, but raised his international profile significantly by winning the 2014 Thelonious Trumpet Competition, which awarded him a $25,000 scholarship and a recording contract with Concord Records. Currently residing in New York, Hill’s return home makes his sophomore Satchmo Saturday appearance particularly special.
