Jazz at Lincoln Center Premieres Big Band Holidays, A Virtual Concert Event Featuring The Jazz At Lincoln Center Orchestra With Wynton Marsalis

Jazz at Lincoln Center will ring in the holiday season with messages of peace and good cheer with the premiere of a one-of-a-kind virtual concert event, Big Band Holidays, on Saturday, December 19 at 7:00p.m. EST. Ticket holders will have on-demand access to the concert through Sunday, December 27 at 3:00a.m. EST.

The new concert event features never-before-seen performances of the world-renowned Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis and the finest names in vocal jazz including RubĂ©n Blades, Catherine Russell, Kurt Elling, and Ashley Pezzotti exploring the canon of holiday standards as well as favorites including “Winter Wonderland,” “‘Zat You, Santa Claus?,” ‘Nutcracker Suite, Mvt. III,” “O Tannenbaum,” “Let it Snow! Let it Snow! Let it Snow!,” and “Little Drummer Boy.”

Holiday celebrations have been a seasonal tradition at Jazz at Lincoln Center since December 1989. This year’s new virtual presentation of Big Band Holidays, combining new performances recorded at Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Frederick P. Rose Hall, virtual at-home recordings, and highlights from historical Big Band Holidays holiday concerts, is certain to keep the holiday tradition timeless and modern.
