“One rarely hears this music played with such technical brilliance, stylistic authenticity and tonal sheen… the greatest large jazz ensemble working today.” –The Chicago Tribune

No one throws a holiday party like Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra! Under the direction of Pulitzer Prize-winning composer/trumpeter Wynton Marsalis, America’s preeminent jazz orchestra features 15 of the finest musicians working today. They’ll ring in the season with Big Band Holidays, a night of swinging holiday favorites, New Orleans inflections and jazzy good cheer featuring the vocal stylings of special guests Denzal Sinclaire and Audrey Shakir.

Tickets: $28-100 (incl. $3 restoration fee). Premium ticket includes post-concert dessert reception with Wynton Marsalis and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra. Part of the FirstWorks Artistic Icons Series.

Connecting Art with Education:This is Jazz at Lincoln Center’s fourth year in partnership with FirstWorks to educate young musicians across Rhode Island and keep America’s great big band tradition alive and swinging. Together we’ve developed curricula to teach students subjects like civics, social studies and math through jazz. This year’s Big Band Holidays performance will feature student ensembles playing in the VETS lobby and gallery.
