Trumpeter/composer Wynton Marsalis will lead the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra Septet in a FREE virtual concert. The performance aims to entertain, inspire, and uplift audiences with the full vigor, vision, and depth of America’s music. Led by 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 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.

This is a FREE virtual event, but registration required to receive the link to watch. There is also the option to add a donation to support the Lied Center. Registration is available at liedcenter.org.

Join us on the stream after the performance for a discussion and Q&A session with renowned composer and trumpeter Wynton Marsalis and Lied Center Executive Director Bill Stephan. Marsalis and Stephan will discuss The Democracy! Suite performance, building the next generation of jazz audiences, and will take questions from UNL students and the virtual audience.
