Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis
  • Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra
  • Wynton Marsalis, music director and trumpet

About This Concert:

Longtime Twin Cities’ favorites, the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra return for one night only to bring their swing to Orchestra Hall. The band is led by trumpeter and Music Director Wynton Marsalis, a master of jazz and classical traditions, a revered educator and an acknowledged cultural leader. Order your tickets today—their last Orchestra Hall concert sold out!

Fun facts:

  • Wynton’s love of the music of Bach, Beethoven, Mozart and others drove him to pursue a career in classical music as well. His debut recording received glorious reviews and won the Grammy Award for “Best Classical Soloist with an Orchestra.”
  • The orchestra was founded in 1988 as part of the Lincoln Center’s summer concert series, "Classical Jazz." Comprised of 15 of today’s finest jazz soloists and ensemble players, the band has been the Jazz at Lincoln Center resident orchestra since 1988.
  • Wynton Marsalis has won nine Grammy Awards. In 1983 he earned the distinction of being the only artist ever to win Grammy Awards for both jazz and classical records – (an accomplishment he astonishingly repeated in 1984) and he is the only artist ever to have won Grammy Awards in five consecutive years (1983-1987).
  • The orchestra has toured over 300 cities in more than 35 countries on 6 continents.
  • In 1997 Wynton Marsalis became the first jazz musician ever to win the Pulitzer Prize for Music for his epic oratorio “Blood on the Fields.”
  • Featured in all aspects of Jazz at Lincoln Center’s programming, the remarkably versatile Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra performs and leads educational events – including Jazz for Young PeopleSM family concert series, the Essentially Ellington High School Jazz Band Competition & Festival, the Jazz for Young PeopleTM Curriculum, educational residencies, workshops and concerts for students and adults—in New York, across the U.S. and around the world.

Please note: This performance is approximately 90 minutes and does not have an intermission.
