Wynton Marsalis, music director 
Born in New Orleans, Louisiana, Wynton Marsalis displayed superior musicianship skills at an early age. By age 14, he had already performed with the New Orleans Philharmonic and throughout high school performed with the New Orleans Symphony Brass Quintet and various other jazz bands throughout New Orleans. In 1981, Marsalis formed his own band and performed over 120 concerts every year for 15 straight years. His widely popular music workshops and successful performances sparked new life into jazz throughout the world.

 

Wynton Marsalis has produced over 70 records, including three Gold Records, which have sold millions of copies worldwide. He is also the recipient of nine Grammy Awards® for both jazz and classical records. In 1997, Marsalis became the first jazz musician to win the Pulitzer Prize for Music for his oratorio Blood On The Fields.

 

Nearly 10 years after Marsalis co-founded a jazz program at Lincoln Center, in 1996 Jazz at Lincoln Center was established. Marsalis presently serves as Artistic Director for Jazz at Lincoln Center and Music Director for the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra. Through his leadership, Jazz at Lincoln Center has not only become an internationally acclaimed performance center, but a premier institution of educational programming for students of all ages from around the world.

 

This performance is underwritten by Sherard and Naomi Murphy.
