Holiday celebrations have been de rigueur at Jazz at Lincoln Center since December 1989, when Wynton Marsalis’ band and The Lincoln Center Classical Jazz Orchestra presented “A Classical Jazz Christmas.”

Jazz at Lincoln Center has proudly continued the tradition over the years. For this year’s Big Band Holidays concert, the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis will present fresh arrangements of timeless holiday classics, joined by vocalist René Marie, who All About Jazz called “one of the most arresting and complex vocal personalities performing today,” and vocalist Gregory Porter, who in a brief time has racked up a continuing stream of accolades and awards.
Big Band Holidays takes place in Rose Theater on December 7-8 at 8pm, with a 2pm matinee on December 8.

Jazz at Lincoln Center’s home, Frederick P. Rose Hall, Broadway at 60th Street, New York, New York.

Tickets for Big Band Holidays on December 7-8, 8pm: $10-$120; on December 8, 2pm: $10-$95
