“For me I like to not repeat experiences if possible, to have a different experience every time I go out and play. The possibility of unconditional freedom means a lot to me.”

New album out now!

Unveiling a natural evolution of an impressive career that has ranged from modern classical to big band to the avant garde, the pioneering Petrich literally takes flight on her noteworthy new CD, Murmuration (Surface Tension Records).

Buy it here!

Murmuration unleashes ten compelling forays into an instrumental realm that is both challenging and accessible. Petrich’s tenor and soprano saxophone leads are sparse but profound as she speaks volumes through each solo. Her OpenHand quartet is rounded out by guitarist Alex Oliverio, bassist Sean Brogan and drummer Ryan Anthony, and together the foursome reveals a decidedly cool chemistry at work.
