Every December, the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis brings this holiday extravaganza to Rose Theater for a series of sold-out performances. With soulful big band arrangements of songs both sacred and secular, Big Band Holidays is an uplifting tradition enjoyed by audiences of all ages and backgrounds. In addition to some swinging JLCO instrumentals and music direction by JLCO trumpeter Marcus Printup, special guest vocalists join the band each season for imaginative new versions of classics like “All I Want for Christmas is My Two Front Teeth,” “What Child is This,” and “Jingle Bells.”
This year, the JLCO welcomes rising star Ashley Pezzotti to join the holiday celebration. The matinee show on Sunday will be a Relaxed Performance, perfect for families with children or adults with autism, learning difficulties, or other sensory and communication needs.
Witness the return of this historic musical collaboration and celebrate the most wonderful time of the year alongside your fellow music lovers in the House of Swing!
