Kennedy Center Concert Hall

“A fanfare of trumpets was answered by a sheen of reeds before a froth of swapped phrases unfolded over springy walking-bass swing… Marsalis, a superb technician, welds classic jazz references into a modal jazz palette.” – Financial Times

Treat yourself to an evening of American big-band jazz with the bi-annual Washington Performing Arts presentation of the sensational 15-member Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, led by artistic director, trumpeter, and nine-time Grammy Award-winner Wynton Marsalis. Hear works by Thelonious Monk, Mary Lou Williams, Dizzy Gillespie, Benny Goodman, Duke Ellington, and Charles Mingus. As the Chicago Tribune described the exhilarating force of the band in concert: “The orchestra [tore] through this music as if chasing the wind. Only a group of musicians who have toured together for so long…could have attained this kind of synchronicity.”

This performance is an external rental presented in coordination with the Kennedy Center Campus Rentals Office and is not produced by the Kennedy Center.
