ONLINE EVENT: Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra Septet with Wynton Marsalis performing “The Democracy! Suite”

The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra Septet‘s performance of The Democracy! Suite aims to entertain, inspire, and uplift audiences with the full vigor, vision, and depth of America’s music.
Led by trumpeter/composer Wynton Marsalis and featuring seven of jazz’s finest soloists, the concert’s unique repertoire celebrates jazz’s embodiment of freedom and democracy.
