Event Notes

× A force in the musical words of jazz, pop and R&B, Tia Fuller had completed a Master’s degree in Jazz Pedagogy and Performance when she was selected to tour with pop star Beyoncé. Fuller became a featured soloist on Beyoncé’s tours and performances across the globe, making many DVDs and recordings with the pop icon. Fuller has gone on to record five full-length projects with her quartet, including her most recent Grammy-nominated album, Diamond Cut. She has performed and recorded with a who’s who of jazz, including Terri Lyne Carrington, Esperanza Spalding, Dianne Reeves, Ralph Peterson, Rufus Reid, Wycliff Gordon, T.S. Monk, the late Aretha Franklin, Nancy Wilson, and Geri Allen, among many others. She has received Critic’s Poll awards from the JazzTimes for best alto saxophonist in 2018, and Downbeat for Rising Star. A full-time professor at the Berklee College of Music, Fuller has a media presence as a model in an advertising campaign for national women’s retailer J.Jill. Come and bask in the music of a strong role-model for young jazz musicians, and an exuberant and light-filled spirit!
