Wynton Marsalis performing at KentPresents
Wynton Marsalis is an internationally acclaimed musician, composer, bandleader, educator and a leading advocate of American culture. Currently, he serves as the Managing and Artistic Director for Jazz at Lincoln Center.
Always swinging, Marsalis blows his trumpet with a clear tone, a depth of emotion and a unique, virtuosic style derived from an encyclopedic range of trumpet techniques. When you hear Marsalis play, you’re hearing life being played out through music.
KentPresents is honored to welcome Marsalis this August. The Q&A will be moderated by Darren Walker on a variety of topics: cultural, musical, biographical.
Wynton Marsalis will be joined on stage by Sullivan Fortner.
