Big Band Holidays
Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis

 

The holiday season at UMS kicks off extra early this year, with a Thanksgiving Weekend holiday-themed concert by Wynton Marsalis and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra.

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 along with two charismatic vocalists: smooth-as-silk baritone Denzal Sinclaire and teenage phenomenon Alexis Morrast, a recent first-place winner of the nationally broadcast “Showtime at the Apollo.”

This concert is presented in honor of Dr. E. Royster Harper, the University of Michigan’s Vice President for Student life, on the occasion of her retirement.
