The Orchestra will perform brand new arrangements of songs both sacred and secular, from Billie Holiday’s “I’ve Got My Love to Keep Me Warm” to favorites like “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.”

Under the direction of Pulitzer Prize-winning composer/trumpeter Wynton Marsalis, the world-renowned Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra is known for its stylistic authenticity and its stellar performances from the books of such key swing era units as Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Benny Goodman and Tommy Dorsey. The remarkably versatile orchestra, comprised of 15 of today’s finest jazz soloists and ensemble players, was formed as Lincoln Center’s resident orchestra in 1988. The orchestra spends over a third of the year on tour, and can be heard through its weekly national radio programs, global television broadcasts and numerous recordings.
