ABOUT THE PERFORMANCE
The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra (JLCO), comprising 15 of the finest jazz soloists and ensemble players today, has been the Jazz at Lincoln Center resident orchestra since 1988. Featured in all aspects of Jazz at Lincoln Center's programming, this remarkably versatile orchestra performs and leads educational events in New York, across the U.S. and around the globe; in concert halls; dance venues; jazz clubs; public parks; and with symphony orchestras; ballet troupes; local students; and an ever-expanding roster of guest artists. Under Music Director Wynton Marsalis, the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra performs a vast repertoire, from rare historic compositions to Jazz at Lincoln Center-commissioned works, including compositions and arrangements by Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Fletcher Henderson, Thelonious Monk, Mary Lou Williams, Dizzy Gillespie, Benny Goodman, Charles Mingus, and many others.
HELP MAKE WYNTON MARSALIS & JLCO POSSIBLE WITH A SPONSORSHIP
We are seeking to create a select pool of donors to help provide sponsorship support for October 4, specifically due to the higher fee for this major headline artist compared to the usual fees Music Worcester provides for its large-scale events. All participating donors with sponsorship gifts of $1,000 or more will receive tickets to the concert. If interested, you can make your gift here.
