Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis Presents Big Band Holidays

Featuring Guest Artists Alexis Morrast and Denzal Sinclaire
It’s the most wonderful time of year! The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis and music director Marcus Printup continue a beloved annual tradition with Big Band Holidays. Featuring soulful, big band versions of classics like “Jingle Bells,” “Joy to the World,” and “Brazilian Sleigh Ride,” Big Band Holidays is an uplifting holiday program that plays to sold-out audiences around the country every December.

Big Band Holidays is renowned for showcasing some of the most exciting and charismatic vocalists on the scene, with recent editions including Cécile McLorin Salvant, Gregory Porter, René Marie, Vuyo Sotashe, Veronica Swift, and Catherine Russell. This year the JLCO welcomes back an old favorite, the smooth-as-silk baritone vocalist Denzal Sinclaire.

The band is also thrilled to present a Big Band Holidays first-timer: teenage phenomenon Alexis Morrast, first-place winner of the nationally broadcast Showtime at the Apollo.

Appealing to audiences of all ages, Big Band Holidays is a fun, one-of-a-kind holiday extravaganza that’s sure to brighten up your season.
