For musician Sherrie Maricle, her drum set is a real-life metaphor of her career. Just as playing the drums requires coordinating four limbs at the same time, Maricle's career coordinates successes as a jazz artist, composer, teacher and music director. From the drum set Maricle leads her big band The DIVA Jazz Orchestra, her quintet FIVE PLAY and The DIVA Jazz Trio. From Carnegie Hall, she performs with The New York Pops and serves as the orchestra's Director of Education. As a teacher she runs a private drum set and percussion studio and is also a conductor for The New York Summer Festival. Sherrie is an active clinician for Yamaha Drums, Sabian Cymbals, Aquarian Drum Heads and Vic Firth Drum Sticks. She is also a busy freelance performer and a published composer/arranger in both the classical and jazz mediums. The DIVA Jazz Orchestra has been featured on CBS Sunday Morning with Charles Osgood and was presented on the television special The Kennedy Center 25th Anniversary Celebration. In 2009 Sherrie and her trio were guests on Marin McPartland's world-renowned NPR show Piano Jazz, and this year The DIVA Jazz Orchestra will be prominently featured in a documentary film entitled The Girls in the Band.
