The legendary Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra makes its long-awaited QPAC debut!
Led by nine-time GRAMMY® winner Wynton Marsalis, this superlative big band features top musicians from the American jazz scene, who share a passion for personal expression, team spirit and musical celebration. Their unique take on jazz classics continually fills halls right across America and Europe.
Trumpet legend Wynton Marsalis has recorded more than 70 albums and is the first and only artist to win both classical and jazz GRAMMY® Awards in the same year … a feat he achieved two years in a row. He is also the first jazz artist to be awarded the prestigious Pulitzer Prize in music for his oratorio Blood on the Fields, which was commissioned by Jazz at Lincoln Center.
