JAZZ AT LINCOLN CENTER ORCHESTRA SEPTET WITH WYNTON MARSALIS: THE SOUNDS OF DEMOCRACY
December 5, 2020 | RCU Theatre
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 in this virtually streamed concert.
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.
