In these trying times, we plan to continue entertaining, enriching, and expanding the global community for jazz through online education and our social platforms. Please consider supporting Jazz at Lincoln Center, at whatever level you can.


Thank you for your continued support of Jazz at Lincoln Center. Over the last few months, we have explored all options that would allow us to proceed with the 2020-21 concert season while also ensuring the safety of our audiences, performers, and staff. We have arrived at the difficult decision to cancel all events through December 20, 2020, as well as select concerts slated for 2021. 

It saddens us greatly to further delay the reopening of the House of Swing as we very much believe in the power of jazz to uplift, inspire, and create a sense of community. We look forward to presenting a shorter, curated spring concert season featuring performances celebrating Charlie Parker, Betty Carter, Billie Holiday, Abbey Lincoln, Nina Simone, and John Coltrane, as well as collaborations with Bryan Stevenson, SFJAZZ, Riley Mulherkar, and more.

We look forward to welcoming you back to the House of Swing in the new year.

Rose Theater 2020-2021

Voices of Freedom: Betty Carter, Billie Holiday, Abbey Lincoln, and Nina Simone

Featuring the JLCO with Wynton Marsalis

Experience the essential works of some of the 20th century’s most powerful singers and songwriters, performed by the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis and vocalists Melanie Charles, Shenel Johns, and Ashley Pezzotti. Under the music direction of JLCO trombonist and vocalist Chris Crenshaw, this brand-new program looks back at four great singers whose unapologetically honest art has stood the test of time in its meaning and musicality.
