Magalie Souriau | Composer
Born in Aix-en-Provence, France, Magali moved to Boston in 1989 as a young woman to attend the Berklee College of Music. There she met legendary jazz pianist and lifelong friend Tommy Flanagan, who jumpstarted what would become a brilliant musical career.
Along with the Magali Souriau Orchestra, Souriau scored the hit 2001 “Birdland Sessions” album, which was followed up by the 2004 “Petite Promenade” album which she performed with a jazz trio including saxophonist Chris Cheek, and bassist Matt Pavolka.
