Before she won Best New Artist at the Grammys on Sunday night, you might not have heard the name Esperanza Spalding. But over the past five years, the 25-year-old singer, bass player and composer has gained steady acclaim in the jazz and world music communities for her improvisatory chops, airy vocals and her facility in blending Brazilian folk, jazz and pop.

Whether you were already hip to her or not, don't miss the chance to see her live on March 4 at the Weinberg Center for the Arts in Frederick, where she'll perform songs from her 2010 release, "Chamber Music Society." On the album, Spalding reinterprets the traditional string ensemble and adds drums, piano, and her voice to the mix.

With her big Grammy win, tickets are likely to go fast. Buy them soon if you want to see the show.
