Wynton will be one of the great jazz musicians at “The Master of Swing” Tribute to Oscar Peterson, this June 8th at Carnegie Hall, New York City.
This all-star program will pay homage to the man and his music. Oscar Peterson is thrilled about this historic event and wants to thank everyone involved for their participation in his honor. Mrs. Oscar Peterson and Celine Peterson, their daughter, will be present in his place as he is not strong enough at this time to make the trip.
