The Emma Hedrick Quintet includes an international lineup of Emma Hedrick on voice, Federico Termini on Piano, Marcos Sanchez Martinez on Bass, Egidio Gentile on Drums, and Pablo Cruz on Saxophone who are all current students or graduates of the Royal Conservatoire and Codarts. Emma Hedrick has seven Downbeat Student Music Awards and placed 3rd in the International Ella Fitzgerald Vocal Competition. Emma has also performed across the U.S. in festivals like Indy Jazz Fest, Elkhart Jazz Festival, St. Petersburg Jazz Festival, and Telluride Jazz Festival. This summer she was a vocalist for the Jong Metropole Summer 2023 European tour. The quartet has performed at Koorenhuis (opening for Nefertitti), the Voorschoten Cultural Center, Jazz Café Bebop, and Café September.

The repertoire of the band includes Emma’s original music with a few rearrangements of jazz standards mixed in. Emma Hedrick’s music is rooted in the harmony and style of jazz tradition blended with attentiveness to lyric and melody from the singer-songwriter genre. The
rearranged standards are old favorites with a fresh, new take in the delivery. Emma aspires to take her audience through the story of each song she sings. Adding to this, each individual member of the band brings their own unique perspective to the music resulting in a live dynamic collaboration. The audience can expect vivid imagery within every song, unique original music, and an overall engaging show.
