Nicky is thrilled to have been awarded an Explore & Create: Concept to Realisation grant from the Canada Council for the Arts. The grant will support the recording of her next jazz album, which will be produced by Grammy-nominated producer, composer and arranger (and dear friend!), Oded Lev-Ari.
Nicky loved being interviewed by composer Matthijs van Dijk for The South African Composers Archive podcast. You can hear their conversation (including snippets of Schrire's Jonker Suite and previous compositions) at this link or find the episode wherever you find your podcasts.
