Jazz at Lincoln Center Swings in The Holidays
New York, NY – October 21, 2013 – This holiday season, Jazz at Lincoln Center brings back Big Band Holidays, a favorite seasonal tradition in Rose Theater, and the second annual Ring In The Swing: A New Year’s Eve Dance Party, the organization’s swing dance party and concert, in The Allen Room.
Holiday festivities 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 program, the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis will present fresh arrangements of timeless holiday classics, joined by vocalist Cécile McLorin Salvant, who The New York Times said “radiates authority and delivers a set with almost a dramatic arc.”
Big Band Holidays takes place in Rose Theater on December 12-14 at 8pm, with a 2pm matinee on December 14. These concerts will be streamed live for free to a global audience in high-definition audio and video via http://wyntonmarsalis.org/live
