School Day Performance for K-12 Students

Wynton Marsalis brings his Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra to Hill Auditorium with a special holiday program.

With soulful big band arrangements of songs both sacred and secular, this concert features swinging Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra instrumentals as well as imaginative new versions of classics like “White Christmas” and “Merry Christmas Baby” performed by two special guest vocalists: Veronica Swift and Vuyo Sotashe, both distinctive young talents who have been major hits when performing in Jazz at Lincoln Center’s smaller venues in New York. This concert is sure to bring some yuletide cheer to your holiday season.

Pre- and post-show workshops offered.

Students will explore storytelling through the lens of jazz music — by examining the music’s cultural and stylistic origins, its derivative forms, artistic interpretation, and its improvisational aspects. Students will adapt traditional secular holiday songs, and reinterpret them by creating original lyrics, composing a different melody line, or experimenting with tempo and rhythm. Students will experiment creating their own songs in the spirit and history of the great jazz tradition. The workshops make connections to English Language Arts, American History, Current Events, and Music Education.
