Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis: A Night with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra

Mar 3

8:00 PM

Friday, March 3, 2017

Widely considered “the greatest large jazz ensemble working today” (Chicago Tribune), the mighty Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis comprises some of today’s most outstanding and virtuosic jazz musicians. They join forces with the unparalleled musicians of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra for an electrifying, one-night-only event that includes classical works paired with newly arranged jazz versions and a selection from Marsalis’ own Swing Symphony, which The Telegraph calls “a journey through jazz history and the sounds of America itself.”

Note: Due to speaker placement for this event, patrons in the Terrace will not experience the same high quality of sound as in other areas of Orchestra Hall.
