Oskar Stenmark

Oskar Stenmark grew up in Gothenburg, Sweden. His family contains generations of professional musicians, so Oskar split his childhood between the Concert Hall and the local jazz club. He quickly developed a musical interest, and eventually picked up the trumpet. After a Bachelor’s degree in improvisation at the Academy of Music and Drama in Gothenburg, Oskar moved to New York to pursue his musical dreams. He has performed with stars such as James Morrison, Dave Liebman and the multiple GRAMMY award winner Maria Schneider Orchestra. In May 2016 Oskar got his Master of Music in Jazz Arts degree at the Manhattan School of Music and continues to develop his playing and artistic vision.

Leading his own trio, quartet and octet, Oskar is exploring the traditional melodies he inherited from his ancestors in Sweden and fusing them together with the sounds of New York.
