Join us for this high-energy celebration guided by the maestro himself, the iconic trumpeter and composer Wynton Marsalis! This exhilarating night of grand-scale jazz features some of today’s most extraordinary jazz virtuosos — the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra.

“Marsalis, a superb technician, welds classic jazz references into a modal jazz palette. As his solo unfolded, he injected the growls, slurs, and blares of jazz’s formative years into a stream of modernist lines, holding the audience in his palm.”

Wynton Marsalis

Wynton Marsalis is the Managing and Artistic Director of Jazz at Lincoln Center. Born in New Orleans in 1961 to a musical family, Marsalis was gifted his first trumpet at age six and soon began playing in the famed Fairview Baptist Church Band. At 12, he began his formal training and performed with groups all over the city, including the New Orleans Philharmonic and New Orleans Youth Orchestra. As a teenager, Marsalis moved to New York City and joined Art Blakey’s band, The Jazz Messengers. By 19, he hit the road with his own band and has been touring the world ever since.  

Marsalis made his recording debut as a leader in 1982 and has since recorded 110 jazz and classical albums, four alternative records, and five DVDs. Marsalis is the winner of nine Grammy Awards, and his oratorio Blood on the Fields was the first jazz composition to win the Pulitzer Prize for Music.  

As a composer, his work includes over 600 original songs, 11 ballets, four symphonies, eight suites, two chamber pieces, one string quartet, two masses, one violin concerto, and a tuba concerto.  As part of his work at Jazz at Lincoln Center, Marsalis has produced and performed countless new collaborative compositions, including the ballet Them Twos, for a 1999 collaboration with the New York City Ballet. That same year, he premiered the monumental work All Rise, commissioned and performed by the New York Philharmonic along with the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra and the Morgan State University Choir.  

Marsalis is a globally respected teacher and spokesman for music education. He led the effort to construct Jazz at Lincoln Center’s new home — Frederick P. Rose Hall — the first education, performance, and broadcast facility devoted to jazz, which opened in October 2004. He conducts educational programs for students of all ages and hosts the popular Jazz for Young People™ concerts produced by Jazz at Lincoln Center. In addition to his work at JALC, he is also the Founding Director of Jazz Studies at The Juilliard School.  

Marsalis has written and is the host of the video series Marsalis on Music, the radio series Making the Music, and a weekly conversation series titled Skain’s Domain. He has been appointed Messenger of Peace by United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan (2001), and he received the National Medal of Arts (2005) and the National Medal of Humanities (2016). In December 2021, Marsalis and Jazz at Lincoln Center were awarded the Key to New York City by Mayor Bill de Blasio.  

Marsalis has received honorary doctorates from 39 universities and colleges throughout the U.S, including Harvard, Yale, Princeton, and Tulane.
