One of the most recognizable young trumpeters and composers in the New York scene, Skonberg's work spans both contemporary and traditional jazz.

In 2013, Bria Skonberg earned a Jazz Journalists' Association nomination for "Up and Coming Jazz Artist of The Year." She has been included in DOWNBEAT Magazine's Rising Star Critics' Poll the last two years, was recently honored with a New York Bistro Award for "Outstanding Jazz Artist" and swept the 2014 Hot House Jazz Magazine Awards in all categories nominated: Best Jazz Artist, Best Trumpet, Best Female Vocalist and Best Group (for the Bria Skonberg Quartet). Her first professional gig was as a big band singer at age sixteen doubling on trumpet and she has since performed as a bandleader and guest artist at over 50 jazz festivals in North America, Europe, China and Japan. Since moving to New York in 2010 she has headlined at Symphony Space, Birdland, The Iridium, Dizzy's and Cafe Carlyle. Skonberg has been featured on Wycliffe Gordon's projects, recording on the Louis Armstrong tribute "Hello Pops," performing a tribute to Dizzy Gillespie at Dizzy's Jazz Club in New York and as a member of Gordon's big band. Her debut US release So Is the Day peaked at #7 on the US National Jazz Charts; it features mostly original material and an all-star ensemble including John Pizzarelli, Victor Goines and Wycliffe Gordon. Released on Random Act Records, 10% of all proceeds go to support the Jazz Foundation of America. Skonberg is an active volunteer at the Louis Armstrong House Museum in Corona, Queens and is a co-producer of the New York Hot Jazz Festival.  Bria's show at Greenwich House Music School will feature Adrian Cunningham on clarinet and sax, Sean Cronin on bass, Darrian Douglas on drums and Dalton Ridenhour on piano.
