Big Band Holidays
Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis

 

UMS champion and iconic trumpeter Wynton Marsalis welcomes audiences back to Hill Auditorium this Thanksgiving Weekend, when his Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra brings its fun, one-of-a-kind holiday extravaganza to brighten up the season.

They celebrate the most wonderful time of the year with seasonal confections that put the heart and soul into the holidays. With fresh arrangements, playful improvisation, and abundant good cheer, their big band arrangements of songs both sacred and secular feature the core group of grooving instrumentalists alongside virtuosic vocalist Alita Moses, who is certain to liven up Hill Auditorium.
