Continuing a beloved New York tradition, the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis warms up the House of Swing with soulful renditions of holiday classics. With fresh arrangements, playful improvisation, and entertaining storytelling, they bring out the magic in such classics as Count Basie's "Jingle Bells," "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas," and Billie Holiday's "I've Got My Love to Keep Me Warm." Jazz royalty Catherine Russell joins as special guest vocalist for the second year. This year she'll be joined by another JALC favorite, fellow vocalist Kenny Washington. For audiences of all ages, this live-stream performance will create lasting memories that will keep you feeling good throughout the season.
This special performance of Big Band Holidays will be a Relaxed Performance. Relaxed Performances are designed to provide an opportunity for children or adults with autism, learning difficulties or other sensory and communication needs to enjoy our performances with their families in a more relaxed environment.
