“The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra is ridiculously tight, executing tricky maneuvers like a fighter jet.” (DownBeat)

Since 1988, Wynton Marsalis has led the 15-piece Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, which simultaneously honors the rich heritage of Duke Ellington and Louis Armstrong while presenting a stunning variety of new works from illustrious names, many of whom perform regularly with the ensemble. “You know it’s a good gig when you can’t tell if the band or the audience is having more fun.” (Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel) Following Friday’s performance of Marsalis’s All Rise, the group returns in its big band format for an afternoon of jazz.

This appearance concludes a week-long residency that will include two public concerts, a School Day Performance for K-12 students, connections with students at the U-M School of Music, Theatre & Dance — and a halftime appearance with the Michigan Marching Band!
