The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis (JLCO) comprises 15 of the finest Jazz soloists and ensemble players today. This remarkably versatile orchestra performs a vast repertoire ranging from original compositions and commissioned works, to masterworks by Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Dizzy Gillespie and more.

Wynton Marsalis, an internationally-acclaimed, award-winning trumpeter, composer, teacher, and music educator, also serves as the JLCO Managing & Artistic Director.  Marsalis’ core beliefs and foundation for living are based on the principals of Jazz. He promotes individual creativity (improvisation), collective cooperation (swing), gratitude and good manners (sophistication), and faces adversity with persistent optimism (the blues).

Tickets for this exciting live event go on sale through The Kentucky Center Ticket Service Friday, August 4, at 10 a.m., online, by phone (502.584.7777), and at the box office (501 W. Main Street).
