The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra Septet’s performance of “The Sounds of Democracy” aims to entertain, inspire and uplift audiences with the full vigor, vision and depth of America’s music.
Led by trumpeter/composer Wynton Marsalis and featuring seven of jazz’s finest soloists, the concert’s unique repertoire celebrates jazz’s embodiment of freedom and democracy.
The evening will feature the premiere of The Democracy Suite, a new Marsalis composition written during the ongoing COVID-19 crisis as a response to the political, social and economic struggles facing our nation. The Democracy Suite is a swinging and stimulating instrumental rumination on the issues that have recently dominated our lives as well as the beauty that could emerge from a collective effort to create a better future.
Patron-level tickets at $150 and $250 are available at TheSheldon.org/events/wynton and include concert stream, four week online jazz education course with Swing U, and a tax deduction.
Concert stream will be available for 24 hours following the performance. Link will be sent at least 2 hours prior to the scheduled start of the stream. A valid e-mail is required to receive the concert link.
