After 20 months of closures due to the pandemic, Jazz at Lincoln Center opens its doors to live audiences on November 18-20, 2021 at 8:00p.m. ET and celebrates Managing and Artistic Director Wynton Marsalis’s 60th birthday in the opening night concerts, Wynton at 60.

For this celebratory event, the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis, known for its unprecedented musical range, will take its dynamism to a new level as the group performs a retrospective of Marsalis’s incredible career. Exclusively for these special performances, the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra will be joined by guests Summer Camargo, Giveton Gelin, Tatum Greenblatt, Anthony Hervey – trumpeters who Marsalis has mentored through Jazz at Lincoln Center’s education programs and are now rising stars in jazz.

Wynton at 60 will feature the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis and guests performing Marsalis’s groundbreaking and award-winning works written for big band. He will additionally perform with a small group composed of JLCO members and guests-something he hasn’t done in Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Rose Theater since 2011.

Wynton at 60 will also be available via livestream on November 18 at 8:00p.m. ET, and on demand until midnight on November 25.
