Rose & the Nightingale is a quartet of multi-instrumentalists blurring the boundaries between chamber music and jazz. The ensemble features the compositions of cellist/singer Jody Redhage Ferber, as well as Sara Caswell on violin, Leala Cyr on voice & trumpet, and Laila Biali on voice & piano.

The group has also led poetry and songwriting workshops with K-12 students around the nation, collaboratively crafting and performing new compositions using student poetry inspired by botanical gardens as the lyrics.
